Leicester will be hoping to make history tonight by overturning a 2-1 deficit in their second-leg Champions League tie against Sevilla.

 

Jamie Vardy’s late goal in Sevilla gives Leicester some hope of an upset, despite losing in Spain last month.

 

Since then the man who brought Leicester their first ever Premier League title, Claudio Ranieri, has been sacked and replaced by his former assistant Craig Shakespeare.

 

Tonight will be Shakespeare’s first official match as Foxes boss and he feels his side are more than capable of going all the way in this competition.

 

During a press conference on Monday Shakespeare said: “I’m expecting the team to really play off the front foot,” Shakespeare, who was appointed Leicester manager for the rest of the season on Sunday, said in his pre-match press conference.

 

“That is not saying we are going to be open, because we know Seville have got some world-class players, but it makes for an interesting game. We knew by getting the away goal it gave us a great opportunity.”
