Leicester City welcomes Sevilla to England on Tuesday for its Champions League round of 16 second leg clash. Here’s everything you need to know, and be sure to return for our live blog just before kickoff.
When: Tuesday at 3:45 p.m. ETWhere: King Power Stadium, LeicesterTV: FS1Stream: Fox Sports Go and Fubo TV
What’s at stake: A spot in the Champions League quarterfinals. Sevilla holds a 2-1 lead after the first leg, but there is still all to play for, especially after Jamie Vardy’s crucial away goal. 
Key statistic: This is Leicester’s first ever participation in the Champions League, and on Tuesday the Foxes could be quarterfinalists. 
Player to watch: Vardy. He will be confident after the first leg, and considering Sevilla likes to push forward, he should have some space to create in attack. If he can take his chances, the hosts are through.
Last meeting: In the first leg on Feb. 22, Pablo Sarabia and Joaquin Correa scored for Sevilla before Vardy’s 73rd-minute goal gave Leicester life in a 2-1 win for the Spanish club.

Prediction: Leicester’s nightmare season (because of its play in the Premier League) has turned around a bit after the firing of Claudio Ranieri. It keeps trajecting upwards here, with Riyad Mahrez stealing the show. Leicester 3, Sevilla 1.
