​Forget FA Cup magic. The fairy tales are happening in the Champions League this year.


After Barcelona shocked the world to claw their way back from certain death against Paris Saint-Germain last week, Premier League champions Leicester City have made it to the last eight of the European tournament in miraculous fashion, having been written off from the competition after their 2-1 first-leg loss to Sevilla when their season looked to be crumbling under Claudio Ranieri.

FBL-EUR-C1-LEICESTER-SEVILLA

Goals from Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton ensured safe passage for the now Craig Shakespeare-led Foxes as they reversed the deficit to claim a 2-0 victory against the Spanish side on Tuesday.


The second half of the match was quite dramatic, with Samir Nasri getting sent off after headbutting Jamie Vardy, albeit mildly, Kasper Schmeichel saving a late penalty, and Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli receiving marching orders himself.


Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter, as it happened.


First there was Nasri's meltdown...

...of course there was the obligatory Arsenal bashing!

​​

​​

​​

​​

​​

...and the conspiracy theory!

​​There was a lot of references to sacked Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri...


​​

​​

Even N'Golo Kante was in the stands to cheer on his former side...



At the end of the day though, you've got to hand it to the Foxes, who reach the last 8 of the Champions League in their first ever attempt...
