Leicester Continuing Champions League Dream, Juventus Advance
Leicester City’s run in their first Champions League campaign is still not done yet as they got into the quarter final of the competition following a second leg win over Sevilla.
Losing 2-1 in their first meeting, Leicester knew they had the chance in turning things around at their own home and The Foxes did just that.
Senior defender, Wes Morgan brought that joy on the 27 minutes when he scored to give his side that slender lead going into half time break.
Things suddenly got much better for the home side as they double their advantage, this time with an effort from Marc Albrighton.
Sevilla did have a chance in pulling one back from the penalty spot, but Steven N’Zonzi saw his rather tame effort denied by Kasper Schmeichel, who also made similar kind of save in the first meeting.
The game seemingly all in favor The Foxes as their opponent had to end the match with 10 men following Samir Nasri’s sending off.
Meanwhile, in other match, Juventus comfortably securing their spot in the quarter final after grabbing a 1-0 win at home over FC Porto, adding to their previous 2-0 aggregate lead in the first leg.
The match started off sparkling with Porto poised on pushing forward in search for goals, but after Juve got a penalty which also saw Maxi Pereira sent off for stopping the ball with his hand.
Paulo Dybala converted the spot kick and gave that slender lead, which surprisingly lasted until the final whistle as no more goals were scored by either teams.
