Leicester City’s remarkable resurgence under the guidance of Craig Shakespeare continued tonight, as ‘The Foxes’ scored twice in front of their faithful at the King Power Stadium, securing a 2-0 victory on the night and a 3-2 aggregate win in their Champions League Round of 16 tie with Sevilla.

Wes Morgan opened the scoring for Leicester in the 27th minute, much to Gary Lineker’s delight.

And Marc Albrighton tagged on the home side’s second in the 55th.

Things got even better for the English champions in the 75th minute, as Samir Nasri was shown a second yellow card and sent off following a controversial incident with a rather theatrical Jamie Vardy – but what would you expect from one of Shakespeare’s protagonists?

The drama wasn’t over, however, as Sevilla were awarded a penalty in the 80th minute, only for Kasper Schmeichel to deny Steven N’Zonzi.

The dying minutes were dicey for Leicester, as Sevilla piled on the pressure, but the men in blue hung tough to secure their place in the quarter-finals.
