Leicester continued to defy the odds in miraculous style last night, overcoming a 2-1 first-leg deficit against Sevilla to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Foxes were 2-0 winners on the night courtesy of goals from captain Wes Morgan and Mark Albrighton but the game was marred by a second half incident between Jamie Vardy and Samir Nasri.

Vardy and Nasri had a coming together late in the game and replays showed that the Manchester Cit loanee seemed to headbutt the Leicester striker and received a second yellow card for his actions – but why did he do it?

GFFN, who cite France Football, claim that several times during the match, Vardy had insulted Nasri’s family which caused the Frenchman to boil over and earn himself a red card.

Verbal insults were made throughout the game but never came to the attention of the match officials and Nasri therefore took actions into his own hands.

Leicester earn their place in the last eight of the Champions League for the first time in their history and could be England’s only representatives left in the competition if Manchester City fail to see off Monaco this evening.
