Fans at the stage asked questions to former City players, Steve Walsh, Alan Young and Ali Mauchlen. "Wish we could have an atmosphere like this for every game," Walsh said. "It'll be a very difficult game for the boys, the sunny weather suits the Spanish team but you never know."
Leicester singer Jersey Budd and Ruth Lorenzo also performed in front of a cheering packed stadium before kick-off. "It's an absolute privilege to sing 'When your smiling' before the game," Budd said.
