Leicester’s Vardy ends goal drought in 2-1 loss at Sevilla

first_imgSEVILLE, Spain (AP) — Sevilla missed an early penalty in a 2-1 win over Leicester in their Champions League Round-of-16 first leg on Wednesday, with Jamie Vardy scoring his first goal of 2017 for the visitors.Pablo Sarabia and Joaquin Correa scored in each half to leave the Spanish club a draw away from reaching the quarterfinals of the European competition for the first time in nearly 60 years.But Leicester won’t go home too heavy-hearted after a spirited second half which it hopes will kick start its poor domestic season.Vardy kept Leicester alive with a 73rd-minute goal in one of the few chances created by the English champions at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in Seville.Correa missed a 15th-minute penalty for the hosts, which are a three-time defending champion in the Europa League but haven’t advanced past the last 16 in the Champions League since 1958.In Wednesday’s other Champions League match, Juventus beat host FC Porto 2-0 with second-half goals by substitutes Marko Pjaca and Dani Alves.Sarabia opened the scoring with a firm header into the far corner after a cross by Sergio Escudero from the left side, and Correa made up for his missed penalty by adding to the lead from close range after a pass by Stevan Jovetic in the 62nd.Struggling to stay out of the relegation zone in the Premier League, Leicester scored the important away goal when Vardy got to a low left-side cross by Danny Drinkwater.Sevilla almost claimed a third goal after an 88th-minute header by Adil Rami struck the crossbar.“We had several opportunities, we had to score more goals,” Jovetic said. “You have to score in every chance you get, especially in a Champions League game like this, otherwise it becomes difficult.”Correa’s weak penalty was easily saved by Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.The result kept Sevilla unbeaten in eight games in all competitions, a run of six wins and two draws.Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli watched from the stands as part of a two-match touchline ban when he was sent off in a group-stage game against Juventus.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
