Premier League champions Leicester can put their domestic struggles to one side this week when they visit Sevilla for the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie on Wednesday (7.45pm kick-off).
Claudio Ranieri’s side won their group earlier in the season with four wins from their six games, and their displays in the competition were similar to those that won them the Premier League title last season.
However, those displays have not been translated into their title defence, which currently sees the Foxes 17th in the table having won only five of their 25 league games this term.
