After being thrashed by Chelsea in the league, Leicester City will look to jumpstart their season (again) with another Champions League win. The Foxes last two games in the competition followed heavy defeats, but neither seemed to knock the confidence out of a team that’s yet to drop points in Europe.
It’s going to be very tough because FC Copenhagen are a very disciplined side and they’re very tough to beat. They’ve had a very good start in their own campaign. They’ll be going into the game with a lot of confidence and so will we - Kasper, yet to concede in the competition, has every reason to be confident
The group’s 4th seed, at home, should be easiest match on paper. In practise, the Danish champions took a well earned point away against Porto before thrashing the group’s true whipping boys Brugge and could be dangerous opposition.
