Sevilla were threatening to run riot, but Jamie Vardy poached a crucial away goal to give the Premier League champions precious hope.
And that’s that! Jamie Vardy’s away goal has kept Leicester City’s Champions League dreams alive! Sevilla were threatening to run away with this tie. They were two goals to the good, having also missed a penalty, and were probing for a third. But Demarai Gray slipped a clever ball down the left to release Danny Drinkwater into space, and Drinkwater’s dangerous low cross was turned home by Vardy. And in one blistering 2015/16-style move, Leicester were back in it! They’ll now welcome Sevilla to the King Power with hope in their hearts. The second leg promises to be a famous night. We’ll see you for that one, won’t we? Yep, it’s a date!
90 min +2: But from the corner, Leicester clear, and Mahrez goes scampering away down the left. With Gray free on his inside, Carrico has no option but to resort to the professional foul. A booking, and Leicester are very close to an extremely decent result here.
