SHAKESPEARE SETTING UP TRAINING DRILL 6. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LEICESTER CITY MANAGER, CRAIG SHAKESPEARE, SAYING: "Well, I am hoping so but even after the first game we knew that by getting the away goal we would give ourselves a great opportunity. I think being in the dressing room after the Seville game - we knew what a good side they were before the game - after the game, that just enforced that. We give ourselves a great chance and a great opportunity. It will be a special occasion at the King Power, the atmosphere will be electric. I am expecting the team to take the momentum from the two (previous) results, to take the confidence they have gained from that, and really play on the front foot. That is not saying we are going to be open, because we know Seville have got some very, very world class players. But it makes for an interesting game, because of the away goal." STORY: Leicester City will not sit back in Tuesday's (March 14) Champions League last-16 tie second leg at home to Spanish side Sevilla as they look to overturn a 2-1 deficit, manager Craig Shakespeare said on Monday. Sevilla dominated the first leg last month but were made to pay for failing to convert their chances after striker Jamie Vardy scored an away goal for the English champions. "I am expecting the team to take the momentum from the two (previous) results, to take the confidence they have gained from that, and really play on the front foot. ," Shakespeare, who was appointed Leicester manager for the rest of the season on Sunday, told reporters on Monday (March 13). "That is not saying we are going to be open, because we know Seville have got some very, very world class players. But it makes for an interesting game, because of the away goal." Shakespeare has been in charge of Leicester since the sacking of Claudio Ranieri last month during which time they have moved three points above the bottom three after notching back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.
