Leicester City have the chance to take the lead in their UEFA Europa League group on Thursday night if they manage to beat Legia Warsaw.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are looking to secure their first victory in five years and turn things around when the Polish champions head to King Power Stadium at 8pm.
They are currently at the bottom of their European group with just one victory under their belt, but a second would put them in the lead, ahead of the chasing pack by one point, with one game to play.
Leicester will be without Ricardo Pereira and Youri Tielemans, who both played for the team in the 1-1 draw with Leeds United ahead of the international break.
Pereira is suffering from a hamstring injury while Tielemans will continue to recover from a calf problem he has contracted.
“Yuri is still in a bit of time, but he’s making good progress,” the Leicester manager told media at LCFC Training Ground on Wednesday afternoon. “[He’ll be back] maybe in the next few weeks.
“Ricardo will not be available. This hamstring [issue] lingers a bit, so he’ll be away for a few weeks as well. We will just continue to monitor this, but otherwise the team is the same. “
Legia is currently in the relegation zone in Poland this season, but is still in the running to advance in Europe after beating Leicester in the second leg.
Spartak Moscow’s victory over Napoli last night means that, if Leicester win tonight, all four teams would be within three points at the start of the final day.
Leicester City – Scheduled (3-4-3): Schmeichel; Vestergaard, Evans, Soyuncu; Castagne, Dewbury-Hall, Ndidi, Bertrand; Iheanacho, Vardy, Barnes
Legia Warsaw – Scheduled (3-4-3): Miszta; Johansson, Wieteska, Jedrzejczyk; Ribeiro, Slisz, Josué, Mladenovic; Muci, Emreli, Luquinhas.
Leicester City 1/7
Legia Warsaw 15/1
