Ndidi Sparkles As Leicester City Continue Champions League Fairy TaleEnglish Premier League champions Leicester City are through to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League after seeing off last year’s Europa League winners Sevilla on Tuesday night.

The Foxes advanced 3-2 on aggregate after beating their Spanish opponents 2-0
at the King Power Stadium.

On 27 minutes, Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi was among the players in the box as captain Wes Morgan bundled the ball over the line after an undefendable freekick in a dangerous area from
Riyad Mahrez, and that goal separated the two teams at the end of the first half.

Marc Albrighton gave the home team a two-goal cushion in the 54th minute, taking his time before hitting target with a left foot shot after a cross deflected to him.

Down to ten men following the sending off of Manchester City loanee Samir Nasri , Sevilla had a chance to force extra time but ex-Stoke City midfielder Steven N’Zonzi saw his penalty saved by Schmeichel in the 80th minute.

Leicester number 25 Ndidi put in a full shift and was booked with six minutes left on the clock for a dangerous play against Vicente Iborra.

In the closing minutes, the Super Eagles star defended admirably and made a couple of clearances that prevented the Sevilla strikers from reaching the ball.
