When Sevilla and Leicester City met in Spain, few backed then-manager Claudio Ranieri's side to emerge with anything worth shouting about. Pacific Time at Leicester City Stadium in Leicester, England. They may not have been at their best at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for the first leg, but they picked up a crucial goal and have made noticeable improvements in the weeks since.

"But they showed with their performances against Liverpool and Hull, they are trying to prove that they are the Leicester that won the Premier League".

"It's very important what will take place tomorrow and I hope it will be a reward for everyone".

"Leicester have demonstrated that they'll play this game as if it were a World Cup final and we know that, by not winning by the margin we deserved in the first match, we're going to be under a lot of pressure".

"I found it very, very surprising", Sampaoli told his pre-game press conference at the King Power Stadium.

The company said the underperforming locations that are closing will begin their shutdown process in the next several weeks. The Minnesota-based company now operates more than 160 stores, 50 of which opened within the last five years, in 26 states.

Yet in some quarters, the result merely prompted further ire at Leicester's players, who were accused of spinelessly "checking out" on Ranieri, only to suddenly come out fighting as soon as they had seen him off.

The Foxes ultimately lost the first-leg tie 2-1, but could have suffered a heavier defeat if it wasn't for Kasper Schmeichel's heroics in the Leicester goal - he pulled off a penalty save and a number of other fine stops. "We have to try and move on as a football club", said Shakespeare. We give ourselves a great chance.

Earlier in the campaign, Sampaoli's team were one of the most entertaining to watch in Europe.
