Leicester vs Slavia Prague: Predictions
The Foxes currently sit in third place in the Premier League on the same number of points as second-placed Manchester United. However, last Thursday Brendan Rodgers’ side failed to impress against Slavia Prague and will be hoping they can pick up from where they left off on Sunday in their 2-1 win over Aston Villa.
Prague proved a tough nut to crack for the English side on Thursday but failed to gain an advantage coming into this week’s second-leg. The Czech side are cruising in their First League at the top of the table and surprised people by progressing from their Europa League group – beating Nice and Hapoel Be’er Sheva to the second spot.
Kelechi Iheanacho leads Leicester’s Europa League goal tally with just three goals but now the tournament has progressed into the knock-out stages Jamie Vardy has taken back his spot in the starting XI.
Leicester vs Slavia Prague: Match Stats
Vardy has recently returned from injury but the striker remains in the hunt for the Premier League Golden Boot with 12 goals this season. Rodgers will be hoping his main man can carry this form over into Thursday’s game with the aggregate score held at 0-0. In just three appearances in this season’s Europa League, Vardy has netted on two occasions.
Prague (10) conceded double the number of goals which Leicester (5) did in the group stages of the Europa League, but the game last week was the first time either side had been held to a 0-0 draw in this season’s competition.
