Leicester in the Champions League

While Leicester’s title defence already looks over even at this early stage of the season, the Foxes have been on fire in their maiden Champions League campaign.

The Premier League champions don’t seem able to buy a win in their domestic league right now, but they look unstoppable in the Champions League.

With 2 wins from their first 2 games, they can essentially book their place in the last 16 by beating FC Copenhagen tonight.

Riyad Mahrez gives them lead against Kobenhavn

And they’re in good position to do that at half-time, taking a 1-0 lead into the break courtesy of a Riyad Mahrez goal.

The Algerian was rested for the Chelsea game at the weekend, and he looks fully refreshed for tonight’s game, scoring from a Slimani assist.
