Sevilla recorded a 2-1 victory over Leicester City in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, but Jamie Vardy’s late away goal has given the Foxes hope for the return fixture.

The La Liga outfit appeared on course to establish a potentially-decisive advantage, but Vardy scored 17 minutes from time to keep the Premier League champions in the tie.

Leicester struggled for long periods of the match in Spain, but manager Claudio Ranieri will have been delighted with the response of his side after falling two goals behind.

In Portugal, two goals in two second-half minutes have helped Juventus to a 2-0 win over Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at Estadio do Dragao.

The Dragons had their work cut out since midway through the first half following a red card shown to Alex Telles, allowing the Old Lady to swing the tie in their favour.

After struggling to truly break their opponents down, Marko Pjaca came off the bench to score his first goal for the club and Dani Alves did likewise, adding a second in quick succession to see Juve become the first Italian side in six attempts to leave here with victory.
