Champions League: The Foxes XI to beat Copenhagen
Leicester City are the Premier League champions.
Those words are still yet to sink in but we’re well and truly into the next season, in which the Foxes are now taking part in their very first Champions League campaign.
One of the crucial cogs in that team, N’golo Kante, transferred to Chelsea over the summer and it has noticeably affected the squad’s performances.
However, unbeaten in their past two Premier League matches, it appears they are back on track on the domestic front.
Despite their wobbles in England, they have been mesmeric in their debut season in Europe’s elite competition.
In their first match, they pulverised Club Brugge in Belgium 3-0, before defeating Porto and Copenhagen at home, both by a score of 1-0.
That means they are yet to concede in the competition and currently have nine points from a possible nine.
They face Copenhagen in Denmark on Wednesday night and all eyes will be on Leicester because victory will see them safely progress to the next round of the competition – likely as group winners.
But with domestic and continental obligations to balance out, it’s imperative Claudio Ranieri gets his starting XI exactly right.
