First Champions League home win in 132 years! Ranieri delighted for Leicester

Claudio Ranieri was thrilled to have guided Leicester City to their first ever win at home in the Champions League.

The Foxes secured their first victory in Europe's top flight a fortnight ago when beating Club Brugge 3-0 in Belgium and backed that up with a hard-fought 1-0 triumph over FC Porto on Tuesday night.

It was the first Champions League match at the King Power Stadium and Ranieri was delighted to give the fans a special moment.

"I am very happy," said Ranieri.

"It's the first (Champions League) match after 132 years for Leicester. Our fans gave us a lot of energy.

"It's fantastic. All the matches they push behind us.

"It was important to win against Porto because Porto are a very good team, an experienced team with quality players.

"It was important to score a goal and defend very well."
