Leicester City return to Champions League action this week with the European competition a welcome relief from their domestic struggles.
The Foxes’ Premier League title defence has fallen apart in recent weeks and defeat at Watford on Saturday means that, with almost a third of the season gone, Claudio Ranieri’s side sit just two points above the relegation zone.
Those struggles are at odds with their European campaign, where they have continued to play with the same verve that guided them to their first ever domestic title last season.
Undefeated in their four games in the competition so far, Leicester will guarantee qualification for the Last 16 if they earn just a point from their home game with basement boys Club Brugge on Tuesday night.
Victory will put them in pole position to win the group and, given then they have already beaten the Belgians once this season, they will be confident of booking their passage at the first time of asking.
That 3-0 triumph at the Jan Breydel Stadium on matchday one kick-started the Champions League adventure before wins over Porto and Copenhagen at the King Power cemented their position at the top of the table.
A gutsy draw in Denmark last time out put them on the brink of qualification and prove that Leicester, for all their problems on the home front, still have it in them to make a mockery of the bookies’ pre-season odds.
- Club Brugge are winless in their last nine games against English clubs in all competitions (D2 L7), failing to keep a clean sheet in any of those games.
- Club Brugge’s only previous encounters with English clubs in the European Cup/Champions League both ended in defeat: 0-1 v Liverpool in the 1978 final and 0-3 v Leicester City in this season’s group stages.
- Leicester City’s two home games in this season’s Champions League have both ended 1-0, with Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani involved on both goals as goalscorer and assist provider.
- Leicester City are the first team in Champions League history to keep a clean sheet in each of their opening four games. Indeed, Kasper Schmeichel – who broke his hand in the last CL game against Copenhagen – has saved all 11 shots on target he’s faced.
- Leicester City could also become the first team since Malaga in 2012/13 to win their group in their first ever Champions League appearance.
- Only Rostov have averaged a lower passing accuracy (68%) than Leicester (71%) in this season’s Champions League.
- This is Club Brugge’s fifth Champions League participation and they still have never reached the knockout stages. They finished third in their group in each of their four previous campaigns.
- Club Brugge are the only club, along with Dinamo Zagreb, to have lost all four of their games in this season’s Champions League. The Belgium team have never failed to win a game in a previous CL group stage though.
- Club Brugge have managed just one clean sheet in their last 13 Champions League matches.
- Club Brugge have also scored only three goals in their last 10 Champions League away games.
- Jamie Vardy has had two shots on target in his first 334 minutes in the Champions League, none of them have found the back of the net.
