Leicester City defied 5,000-1 odds last season to win the most unlikely championship in Premier League history and arguably in the history of English football. But they have crashed to Earth in league play this season and currently sit just three points over the relegation zone in 15th place, with 12 Premier League games remaining on their fixture list.
The loss away to Sevilla was followed immediately by the sacking of Manager Claudio Ranieri, who led City to its miraculous Premier League title in 2015/2016.
Following Ranieri’s sacking, longtime Assistant Coach Craig Shakespeare was tabbed to manage the reigning champions for the remainder of the season, charged with preventing Leicester City from becoming only the second English champions to be relegated from the top flight the very next season, and the first since Manchester City accomplished the dubious feat in the 1937/1938 season in the old First Division.
Shakespeare got off to a good start, leading the Foxes to consecutive wins over Liverpool and Hull City in Premier League play. Tuesday’s game will mark his Champions League debut as a head coach.
Can new manager Craig Shakespeare lead a Leicester City comeback, beating Sevilla on Tuesday to keep their UEFA Champions League hopes alive? Or will the third-place Spanish side Sevilla hold on to their first-leg lead and advance to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal round? To find out, watch theLeicester City Vs.
