Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester.
Leicester City’s poor league form haven’t affected them in their Champions League outings. The Foxes have been on their very best in the continental tournament and will be eyeing another rout when they host Belgium side Club Brugge on Tuesday night.
Leicester City are leading the group G with 10 points, having won 3 games and drawn 1 in their previous games. A draw is enough to take them into the next phase or if Copenhagen fail to win their fixture against FC Porto.
Meanwhile, Club Brugge are at the bottom of the group with zero points, having lost their previous games. They will need to win this game and also pray that Copenhagen lose against Porto. This will at least to keep their dreams of playing in the Europa League knock-out stages alive.
