Vardy gives Foxes a lifeline

Leicester were beaten 2-1 by Sevilla in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash on Wednesday, but were given hope by Jamie Vardy's away goal.

Pablo Sarabia gave the home side a deserved lead in the 25th minute when he powered a header in off the far post, before Joaquin Correa doubled the hosts' advantage in the 62nd minute.

Correa also saw his penalty turned away by Kasper Schmeichel in a one-sided first half, while Vitolo and Adil Rami both hit the woodwork after the break.

But Vardy pulled one back for the visitors with their first real foray into the opposition box 17 minutes from time after Danny Drinkwater's superb assist, as Leicester managed to survive an onslaught from the hosts and escape with only a one-goal deficit.
