Leicester City were frustrated in the Czech capital last Thursday as they were held to a goalless draw with Slavia Prague.

The Foxes are one of the best teams in the competition this season and a fully strengthened side should have more than enough quality to comfortably beat Prague.
Leicester City vs Slavia Prague: Recommended bets
Harvey Barnes to score first. The winger has really impressive over recent weeks netting in both of his previous Premier League appearances.
Barnes is likely to feature in a strong-looking Leicester side on Thursday and he is sure to play a key role in trying to fire them into the last 16.
He was part of the side that failed to score in Prague last week, but with the pressure on, he will be a player who will look to take control of the game at the King Power.
Barnes will especially be needed with James Maddison doubtful for the game due to a hip injury.

Leicester City vs Slavia Prague: Match preview
Leicester City were held to a shock goalless draw with Slavia Prague last Thursday.
Despite fielding a strong side, Rodgers’ team were unable to get the job done and have plenty of work to do this week.
The Foxes remain one of the strongest sides left in the competition and it would be a huge upset if they failed to reach the last 16.
Slavia Prague will take plenty of confidence from their performance against the Premier League side as they put up a very good fight.
They ended up having more shots, more shots on target and just slightly less possession in the first-leg.
Leicester will still head into Thursday’s second leg full of confidence as they continue to impress in the league.
They managed to defeat a strong Aston Villa side 2-1 at the weekend to maintain their place in third.
The Czech champions were also in domestic action over the weekend as they were held to a 1-1 draw with Teplice.
Jindřich Tripišovský’s side remain top of the Czech First League by eight points.
Leicester City team news vs Slavia Prague
Leicester have been dealt a big injury blow with James Maddison likely to be ruled out of action due to injury.
The midfielder was forced off in their win over Villa after suffering a recurrence of a hip issue.
He will be assessed over the coming days but is a doubt to feature on Thursday.
Wesley Fofana, James Justin, Dennis Praet, Ayoze Perez and Wes Morgan all remain sidelined for the game.
Rodgers is expected to stick with a similar team that drew in Prague last week having fielded a strong side, with the likes of Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes.
Slavia Prague team news vs Leicester City
Slavia will remain without midfielder Petr Sevcik who featured in all of the group stage matches.
Sevcik has suffered ligament damage and has been out of action since December last year.
Tomas Holes has also been ruled out the game after suffering an ankle injury in the first leg.
Holes, like Sevick, is a key member of Slavia’s side and his absence will come as a big blow.
