Craig Shakespeare, Leicester's manager until the end of the season

Craig Shakespeare given Leicester City manager's job for rest of season

In ways more than one, Sevilla are the club that Leicester desire to be: an outfit consistently challenging for the European spots in their own league with an appetite to take on the big boys in Europe. The new manager admitted he did not expect to be taking charge of a Champions League knockout game in his first match as a full-time manager but there is nothing to suggest he will not get the best out of the players. Leicester will need both of their keen attacking skill to overcome their first leg deficit.

Sevilla applied pressure after that, and Schmeichel made a good save from Joaquin Correa, but the game took a further shift in Leicester's favor with 16 minutes remaining as Nasri, already booked for a nasty foul on Wilfred Ndidi, squared up to Vardy. Leicester won the tie 3-2 on aggregates and are now through to the quarter-final. Sergio Escudero hit the bar with a vicious, dipping long-range effort, but two minutes later, Leicester had a second.

Leicester went straight up the other end to ultimately put Albrighton into a similar but more hard shooting position to Pareja, but there was nothing rushed about what he did.

It was very soon Leicester who had an extra man, however.

Sevilla will be keen to find an away goal, which will make matters hard for Leicester.

The Foxes should have made it 3-0 shortly after the hour mark as Vardy scuffed his shot with the goal at his mercy, and the England worldwide held his head in his hands as he spurned a golden opportunity in the box.

Jamie Vardy wasn't on the score sheet but was involved in one of the game's key moments, producing an animated reaction when Samir Nasri leaned his head towards him, resulting in the Sevilla playmaker being shown a second yellow card.

This incredible tie still had another twist as Schmeichel brought down Vitolo, only to redeem himself with a penalty save to his left from N'Zonzi's low kick. It was the goalkeeper punished, but that only gave him the opportunity to again be the hero.

There was still one more chance - but for Vardy.

He wasn't to regret it. Leicester, it seems, won't regret sacking the hero of their last fairytale in Claudio Ranieri.

What impact will Craig Shakespeare's full-time appointment have? We have massive games coming up and we have to focus on that.

And in La Liga, it's increasingly not a matter of whether Sevilla will overhaul Real Madrid and Barcelona in the title race, but whether they can hold off Atletico Madrid to stay in third place.

Leicester are still doing the unpredictable.
