The two teams are making their way back out on to the pitch ahead of the start of the second half. What a first half that was for Leicester!
The home side have been excellent so far, denying Sevilla any clear-cut chances on goal and really frustrating their opponents in the middle of the pitch.
And the second is Mariano, who takes the place of Mercado. Sevilla have made a double substitution as they try to find a way back into the game.
The first player to come on is Stevan Jovetic, who replaces Sarabia. Okazaki makes a real nuisance of himself just outside of the Sevilla penalty area, and once again Leicester are awarded a free-kick in a very dangerous position.
Great play by Vardy! The Leicester striker out-muscles Pareja far too easily before charging down the right wing and towards the penalty area.
His chipped cross fails to find Okazaki before bouncing back out to number nine, who then unleashes a half-volleyed strike that bounces a few yards wide of the near post.
Sevilla desperately push forward as they try to find an equaliser before half-time. Fuchs muscles his way into the Sevilla penalty area and does well to charge through a sea of white shirts.
Mahrez charges into Vitolo and pushes the winger to the ground, resulting in a free-kick for Sevilla over on the left wing.
Sevilla patiently pass the ball around inside the Leicester half of the pitch as they desperately try to find a way through the sea of blue shirts camped in front of them.
A bullet cross-cum-shot from Mercado is tipped over to the top of the crossbar by Schmeichel, resulting in another corner for Sevilla.
Ben Yedder goes close! Leicester are unable to fully clear the danger and allow Sevilla to push forward in numbers once again. Ben Yedder breaks into the right-hand side of the penalty area and carves out a bit of space for himself, but he can only fire a thumping strike into the side-netting.
Sevilla desperately push forward from the restart and win themselves a corner from a deflected long-range shot.
It initially fails to trouble the Leicester back line before a dangerous cross almost finds Ben Yedder, but the striker is beaten to the ball at the vital moment by Huth.
That was a great cross from Mahrez to find Morgan, but Mercado really should have done better to deal with the ball as it flew towards him.

Leicester have taken the lead! After spending an age eyeing up his target, Mahrez steps up and curls a great low cross towards the far post, where Morgan is able to beat Gabriel Mercado before kneeing the ball into the back of the net from close range.
After spending an age eyeing up his target, Mahrez steps up and curls a great cross towards the far post, where Morgan is able to beat Gabriel Mercado before kneeing the ball into the back of the net from close range.
Vardy twists and turns as he weaves his way towards the Sevilla box on a great run, but he has it ended by a poor challenge from Vicente Iborra that results in a Leicester free-kick.
Can they make it count? Nasri then tries to break forward on a quick counter-attack, but Drinkwater darts back and dispossesses the Frenchman from behind with an excellent tackle.
Nasri clips a clever pass over the Leicester midfield and towards Wissam Ben Yedder, who has seen little of the ball so far.
The striker does well to out-muscle Fuchs before cutting the ball back to Sarabia, who then shoots. The wing-back fails to make decent contact, however, and can only send his effort a few yards wide of the near post.
Sergio Rico flaps at a dangerous Danny Simpson cross, allowing Leicester to keep the danger alive over on the left flank. Albrighton then tries to test the Spanish goalkeeper with a ball of his own that sails into the heart of the penalty area, but this one is overhit and fails to trouble the Sevilla back line.
Nasri looks frustrated at having lost out to Ndidi and takes a swipe at the Nigerian, leaving the referee with no choice but to show him the first yellow card of the game.
Vardy quickly closes down Pareja and forces the Sevilla defender into nervously firing the ball out for another Leicester throw-in.
Chance for Danny Drinkwater! A thumping pass forward from Schmeichel finds Shinji Okazaki, who is in a good position deep down the right flank.
He twists and turns and eventually is able to find his way past Vitolo, but, off balance, he can only send his low cross behind the Sevilla goal for a goal-kick.
Early opportunity for Samir Nasri! Pablo Sarabia dinks a lovely pass into the Leicester penalty area and towards Nasri. The Frenchman quickly rounds Wes Morgan before unleashing a thumping low strike towards the near post, but Kasper Schmeichel is there to tip the effort out for a corner with an excellent one-handed save.
After an even start to the game from both sides, Leicester are presented with the first chance to launch the ball into the box.
A long throw-in from Christian Fuchs almost finds the head of Wilfred Ndidi, but Nicolas Pareja does well to reach the ball first before Robert Huth is penalised for a flailing arm that strikes Adil Rami.
Leicester get us underway, attacking from left to right. The two sides are making their way out onto the pitch, with just a few minutes to go until kick-off.
The atmosphere inside the stadium is electric, with both sets of fans in fine voice. Craig Shakespeare has decided to name an unchanged Leicester side to the one that started the victory against Hull City, whilst Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli has made eight changes to the team that featured in their last outing, with only Sergio Rico, Adil Rami and Pablo Sarabia retaining their places in a heavily altered and strong line-up.
Leicester City XI Sevilla went on to win their first two league games after the first leg but have struggled in their previous two outings, with both Deportivo Alaves and Leganes managing to hold them to draws.
Despite winning , Sevilla will have felt disappointed at not being able to finish the first leg with more goals in their possession. They dominated for most of the opening hour before falling away after that, allowing their opponents to leave Spain with an impressive and positive result.
Craig Shakespeare has made an excellent impact since taking over from Ranieri, with the caretaker boss managing to guide his team to back-to-back victories in his first two games in charge.
With a vital away goal under their belts, a win tonight would be enough to see them through to the next round, a previously unthinkable achievement for a side struggling at the wrong end of the domestic table.
Leicester City 2, Sevilla 0. Marc Albrighton Leicester City left footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner.
Leicester City 1, Sevilla 0. I f Leicester progress here, they will look back on that shot from Escudero smacking the cross bar as a turning point: Sevilla were a lick of paint away from being in the ascendancy.
The only consern for Leicester is the energy they have already expended. Including stoppage time there is fully 30 minutes remaining.
F uchs harries Vitolo out of possession on the right-touch line. Vitolo gives the referee a volley of abuse for not giving him a foul and picks up the statutory yellow card for dissent.
W hat can Sevilla muster in way of a response? One goal from them will have us set for extra-time. He steadied himself and fired left-footed into the bottom right-hand corner.
E scudero with an outrageous effort from more than 40 yards. O kazaki turns down the chance to shoot on the edge of the penalty area and Sevilla break away through Vitolo.
The tie is perfectly poised. We have seen some ludicrously high scoring games in the tournament this season, but this is far more tense. S evilla dominating possession in the early stages, with Leicester behind the ball in two banks of four.
Nasri is also picking up a more orthodox central midfield position to try and get the visitors flowing. They have started very brightly. M ariano and Jovetic have replaced Mercado and Sarabria for Sevilla, which has them closer to the shape that worked well in the first leg.
Pro-active stuff from Sampaoli. T he former Man City playmaker has made the most passes in the final third of any player on the pitch, five more than Sarabria in second.
Nasris has completed 15 of Sampaoli will be disappointed by the number of unforced errors committed by his team.
S o important for Leicester to see out these final few minutes. Eventually Vitol works an angle to find Mercado on the overlap on the right flank.
His near post cross was cleared before Schmeichel gathers the cross that was launched back in. The goalkeeper found Vardy with a long throw out who looked as if he was in when he got there ahead of Rami, but the Frenchmen held him up and minimised the danger.
Vardy tried to find Okazaki with a chipped cross but Pareja cut it out with his head. F uchs possibly a little to honest there as he made a foray into the left side of the penalty area.
Looks as if there was contact as Mercado challenged him but he stayed on his feet and stumbled on to lose possession. S evilla struggling to play out from the back against this Leicester pressure: Vardy does well to hold off Rami in his own half as Sevilla tried to press the hosts, winning a free-kick to relieve the pressure.
M ahrez had Escudero isolated there, but attempted a very difficult through ball to Ndidi rather than drive him into the penalty area.
S evilla dominating possession since the goal, which could be the pattern for the remainder of the game.
I wonder if Sampaoli will consider Mariano from the bench? The raiding full back was a real handful in the first leg. As it stands, Leicester are through.
Leicester just about clear a threatening Sanabria cross before Drinkwater and Huth let a ball bounce on the edge of their box that Ben Yedder pounced on.
His shot was well struck but flew wide of the near post. C aptain Morgan with a potentially vital contribution. Bundled in off his shin, but he will not care.
W es Morgan scores for Leicester to make it ! Leicester are getting themselves up the pitch and pressing Sevilla quite high.
At the moment, rewards are out weighing the risk. Leicester have a free-kick on the right corner of the box. D angerous break from Sevilla.
Nasri sprays a long ball over the top for Ben Yedder, who is a wiry little forward. He holds off Fuchs and finds Vitolo, but his right-foot shot from around 20 yards was weak and dribbles wide.
Leicester fans booing because they felt Nzonzi caught Simpson. Nothing given, but replays show they had a case. R ico came for a Danny Simpson cross and missed it, but the ball would not drop for Leicester and Sevilla slash it clear.
There is no doubt Leicester are making the visitors feel uncomfortable, but do they have the quality to find an opening? P etulant from Nasri, who boots Ndidi in the Achilles and picks up a yellow card.
What were we saying about the former Arsenal man? A lovely player to watch, but utterly brainless at times.
S evilla break away from a throw-in in their own half. Poor positional play from the midfielder and he fouls the Italian by way of compensation. Free-kick just left of centre, 35 yards out.
Bizarrely, Rami took it and his shot sailed over the bar. V ardy is back to the scurrying little pest he was last season, and that is a good thing for him and Leicester.
More harrying from him wins a throw in on the left flank. Positive spell for Leicester, but they are yet to fashion a clear-cut chance.
M arc Albrigton whipped in a corner that was cleared, but it dropped to Drinkwater around 25 yards out. Better from the hosts.
F ollowing the earlier Sevilla effort, Leicester register their first attempt at goal. N asri dropping deep to dictate play from deep for Sevilla.
He is a wonderfully inventive ball-player, its just a shame his previous clubs could not arrange a personality transplant. Mahrez lofts in a free-kick that drops to Okazaki at the edge of the box, but his right-footed shot on the swivel was blocked.
I borra slides in to regain possession for Sevilla in the middle of the park. He and Nzonzi are a physical pair in there. Promising moment for Leicester as Vardy gets in a race with Rami down the right flank, but the Frenchman got a foot in to stop the England man in his tracks.
L eicester hurled a long throw into the box but Huth was penalised for a flailing arm. The big German did well to slide in and deny Ben Yedder moments later.
N either side enjoying time on the ball thus far. The early stages suggest Leicester will be sitting fairly deep while allowing the visitors to enjoy more of the ball.
A very well choreographed flag display greets the players as they make their way out, and the operatic Champions League anthem kicks in. Sevilla have a nimble forward line, and their dexterity against the leaden-footed Huth and Morgan is an area of concern for Leicester tonight.
Ex-players swear by the fact atmosphere can affect performances, but from the outside it sounds a load of old baloney. A tattoo of the Premier League trophy to mark a once in a lifetime experience?
Honour the manager who guided you there? His solo effort against Hull was a magnificent piece of individual brilliance. Peter Shilton has gone for a Leicester win while Robbie Savage fancies and extra-time.
L ineker channeled his inner Peter Dury there: F ormer Leicester striker Gary Lineker noticed something very odd and faintly disturbing about the flag display at the King Power.
Read here to find out exactly what it was. S ampaoli seems to have switched to a variant of this evening and has made four changes.
They have been replaced by Iborra, Pareja and Mercado. Want to set the tempo. It will be electric out there and we want to progress. S ince taking the job, Craig Shakespeare has reverted to the that worked wonders last season, and Leicester have stuck with it again tonight.
Only one change from the team Claudio Ranieri fielded in Spain: Shinji Okazaki replaces underwhelming summer signing Ahmed Musa.
