Leicester City’s dream Champions League debut continued as they reached the quarter-finals with a famous win against 10-man Sevilla on Tuesday.

Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, the reigning English Premier League champions went ahead at the King Power Stadium through Wes Morgan’s close-range finish in the 27th minute.

Marc Albrighton then gave the Foxes an aggregate lead in the 54th minute, before Samir Nasri was sent off for a second yellow card in the 74th minute.

Steven N’Zonzi missed a penalty kick that could have turned the game round, as Sevilla tried to take it to extra time.

Newsverge reports that the Foxes join Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Real Madrid in Friday’s quarter-final draw.
