It was one of only two shots framed the Foxes produced during a game in which they were largely under the cosh and had dragged 2-0 in thanks to the Pablo Sarabia header and a close finish Range of Joaquin Correa for Sevilla.
Other hero of the city was Kasper Schmeichel, who saved a Correa penalty with the score 0-0 and also made a number of other good saves.
Sevilla also hit the post and the bar had more than 70% possession but will only take a slender lead at King Power Stadium for the second stage on March 14th.
