Leicester City will be aware that there is still a job to be done in the second leg of their Europa League clash with Slavia Prague in midweek. The Premier League side will be hoping to get the win that they need to progress.
Europa League Preview
Brendan Rodgers will be only too aware that there is still work to be done by his side in the Europa League on Thursday, as his side could only play out a 0-0 draw in the first leg against Slavia Prague. In truth, neither side would have been too disappointed with that result last week, as it means that both sides are still in with a good chances of progressing through to the next round. Leicester will be aware that a win or a score draw will be enough to take them through, but the Foxes aren’t exactly a side that know how to play any other way except to win games of football. Rodgers may be tempted to make a couple of changes from the team that beat Aston Villa last weekend, and Jamie Vardy could be one of the players given a rest with an eye on Arsenal on Sunday.
Slavia Prague will also be hoping that the 0-0 draw that they managed to pick up last week keeps them in with a chance of a shock passage through to the next round. Slavia will be aware that a score draw will put them out, which means that they will need to attack the Foxes regardless on Thursday to stand any chance of reaching the next round of the competition. It could be a potential banana skin for Leicester on Thursday, and Slavia will certainly have a game plan to get through to the next round.
