UCL: Leicester makes it to the Champions League quarter-finals

Leicester are the first English side to overcome a first-leg defeat against Spanish opposition in the Champions League knockout stages since Chelsea in 2005.

Leicester City delivered a new entry into their list of unlikely success stories with a stunning victory over Sevilla at the King Power Stadium that takes them into the Champions League quarter-finals.

The club and team that makes a habit of turning logic on its head did it again as high-flying La Liga side’s 2-1 advantage from the first leg was overturned amid an atmosphere of passion and emotion that evoked memories of last season’s Premier League title win.

It was made all the more remarkable by the fact that three weeks ago, after that first game in Spain, Leicester sacked Claudio Ranieri, the man who masterminded that title triumph, amid tales of dressing-room discontent and fears of relegation.

How have they undertaken this transformation? And how far can they now go in the Champions League?
