    That's just about it from us today - our colleagues over at BBC Sport will take you through the rest of the build up and the game

    Local Live will bring you reaction whatever the result from 08:00 tomorrow. 

  2. Fans set for historic night?

    I suspect these stallholders will be doing a good trade in the hour or so before kick-off.

    Could be a good collector's item. 

  3. 'Don't ask me what scoreline'

    A few final thoughts from me - I fancy Leicester to qualify for the quarter-finals despite the 2-1 first leg deficit. 

    Don't ask me about what scoreline though.  

  4. Fans heading to the King Power Stadium

    This girl has obviously done her maths homework nice and early and is making sure she is at the ground in plenty of time. 

    Fans walk to the ground

    I wonder if she knows she has got a free bag of crisps waiting for her when she arrives? 

  5. Foxes 'look like side that won the league,' Sampaoli says

    Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli has said he is wary of a rejuvenated Leicester City in the second leg.

    He said: "It looks like the same set-up as when they won the league. 

    "The change is in terms of their emotion and morale - they seem a lot more decisive now, they are going for it again."

  6. Champions League awaiting 'first time' quarter finalists

    BBC Local Live

    Whatever happens this evening - European football history will be made, because like Leicester, Sevilla have never made the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

    Who wants it more? 

  7. Free food for City supporters

    Leicester's fans were treated to free beer and donuts by the club's owners last season - tonight if you are heading to the ground you'll get a free bag of crisps.  

    Crisps

    Question is: do you eat them or save them as another collector's item? 

  8. Local Live extended for Champions League

    BBC Local Live

    As a special treat - Local Live will be staying with you a little longer tonight to build up to City's Champions League tie with Sevilla. 

    I'll be guiding you through the extra time, you lucky souls. 

  9. Players set to be greeted by blue and white flags

    Every fan at tonight's game will be able to wave a flag in their team's colours - should make for quite a spectacle.

  11. Mendy won't face Sevilla

    BBC Sport

    We've yet to find out what Leicester City's starting eleven will be this evening but it won't include French midfielder Nampalys Mendy - he's out with a knee injury.

    Aside from that, Craig Shakespeare has a pretty much full strength squad to choose from

  12. Football fans gathering in the fanzone

    There are definitely now a few more Leicester supporters at the fanzone in Jubilee Square.

    However, their chants of "champions of England, we know who we are" are still being drowned out by the visiting Spaniards and the DJ.

    One thing I love about L eicester is we know how to throw a good party.

    Meanwhile, hundreds of Sevilla fans are enjoying the fanzone in Leicester city centre ahead of this evening's match.

    There's a Bob Marley tribute act on the stage, but the supporters seem mostly interested in their own chants. 

    From what I have heard - it promises to be some atmosphere at King Power Stadium.

    The million dollar question is: Will the Spaniards still be quite so lively come 21:45?

    A car has crashed into the Nando's restaurant at Leicester's Highcross shopping centre.

    Police said the driver nor the restaurant's diners were injured.
