Ranieri recalls Vardy, Mahrez for Sevilla test


Seville (Spain) (AFP) – Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri made 10 changes to the side that suffered a humiliating FA Cup exit to third tier Millwall on Saturday for the English champions Champions League last 16, first leg at Sevilla.

Only Nigerian Ahmed Musa retained his place as last season’s title heroes returned, including Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.

Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli sprung a surprise by naming Argentine forward Joaquin Correa in his side with Franco Vazquez dropping to the bench.
