Leicester City vs AEK Athens: Match preview

Leicester have already booked their place in the Europa League knockout stages following their 3-3 draw with Braga during matchweek 4.

However, a shock 1-0 defeat to Zorya Luhansk last time out means they still have work to do if they hope to go through as group winners.

Currently, the Foxes are level on 11 points with Braga but lead the Portuguese side due to their head to head record.

Rodgers is likely to still prioritise their Premier League clash with Brighton on the weekend and could make several changes.

Leicester have made a strong start to their league campaign, currently sat fourth and just three points off of top spot.
