Allegri explained his decision to bring on Alves and hailed the former Barcelona defender for his attitude. "Dani Alves replaced Lichtsteiner, who was booked when we went in front, so I had to play safe in that situation," he said. "Alves is a champion, a guy with a great will and enthusiasm who won a lot. "Entering in the last 20 minutes in the way he did, shows that he is an example and a very professional player." Alves, 33, has made 17 appearances in all competitions this season, having left Barca in June.

    Massive away goal means anything can happen for Leicester - Schmeichel

    Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel believes Jamie Vardy's "massive" away goal made Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League defeat to Sevilla a good result ahead of the home leg. The Premier League champions travelled to Andalusia in wretched form and looked to be on their way to a significant defeat as Sevilla dominated the first half and opened up a two-goal lead in the 62nd minute – Joaquin Correa atoning for a penalty that Schmeichel saved by adding to Pablo Sarabia's opener. But Vardy pulled one back 17 minutes from time to give Leicester a lifeline in the last-16 tie and Schmeichel believes that goal gives them a real chance at the King Power Stadium on March 14. "The away goal's massive," the Dane told BT Sport. "That was a something that we hoped we could get because going to the King Power anything can happen. "It's a joy to play in these games, every player was looking forward to it, everyone ran their socks off and worked hard. "We were up against a very good side, but going in, we were all about us, how much we were hurting from this season. "We wanted to put in a good performance. We lost the game and we're disappointed but they are very, very good and 2-1 away from home in the Champions League is a good result. "We've lost the game. We're disappointed; we're not celebrating, definitely not celebrating. But 2-1 away from home in Champions League - we'll take that."
