Their Premier League title defence may not be going to plan, but it is a different story for Leicester City on the European stage. Consecutive Champions League victories have propelled the Foxes to the top of Group G ahead of a double header against FC Copenhagen, the first of which takes place at the King Power Stadium this evening.

Having overcome Porto on a famous night in the last round of fixtures, the home faithful will be confident of seeing their side notch up another win. The visitors are not to be underestimated, however; Stale Solbakken's side are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season and lead their domestic league by six points.

The Key Battle - Daniel Amartey vs Thomas Delaney

Amartey arrived at Leicester from FC Copenhagen in January - having excelled against Porto, he will be looking to continue his fine European form against his former employers. He will face a tough test against visiting captain Delaney, who is a Denmark international and scored in his side's 4-0 win over Club Brugge last time out.

Last Meeting:

Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is the first ever meeting between these two teams. The last time FC Copenhagen faced English opposition was in 2010/11, when they suffered a 2-0 aggregate defeat to Chelsea in the Champions League round of 16.
