Sure, they're in deep doo-doo with just staying in the top tier this season, but Leicester City still has a bit of last year's magic on display in the Champion's League.

The Foxes hosted Sevilla burdened by a first-leg disadvantage but won the game and, most importantly, in aggregate as the match ended 2-0 and 3-2 overall.
