UCL Draw: City To Face Sevilla In Last-16
- City qualified for the knockout round of European football’s platinum competition as Group G winners
- The first leg at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium will be played on Wednesday 22 February, 2017
- The second leg will be staged at Leicester City Stadium on Tuesday 14 March, 2017
Leicester City face two of the biggest nights in the Club's history after being drawn to meet Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
The Foxes will travel to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium on Wednesday 22 February with the second leg clash at Leicester City Stadium scheduled to take place on Tuesday 14 March, 2017.
Sevilla, five-time winners and current holders of the UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League, have won four of their last seven matches against English opposition since the turn of the millennium.
Jorge Sampaoli's men have dominated the Europa League in recent seasons, winning it on the last three occasions under former manager Unai Emery.
The Spanish outfit, however, have progressed to the last-16 of the Champions League this time around as Group H runners-up below Italian champions Juventus.
City, meanwhile, marched into the knockout round as Group G winners courtesy of magnificent home victories against FC Porto, Copenhagen and Club Brugge under Claudio Ranieri.
Since winning their maiden Champions League fixture 3-0 away in Bruges in September, City have enjoyed a remarkable debut campaign in the competition after lifting the Premier League title last season.
Ticket details and further travel arrangements will be announced on in due course.
