Leicester made to wait after goalless draw in Copenhagen

Claudio Ranieri has told the BBC his Leicester City players can help the club "write another chapter" in their history book if they beat FC Copenhagen tonight in the Champions League. Leicester will have to be rock solid at the back and they will want to get Riyad Mahrez on the ball as much as possible in the hope that he can create some chances for the away team.

Marc Albrighton has warned his Leicester team mates to expect a tough encounter with FC Copenhagen in the Champions League.

In the 89th minute Schmeichel came to the rescue for the Foxes as he got down low to keep out Andreas Cornelius's header that threatened to creep over the line.

In the same group, Juventus also missed the chance to go through after they were hit by a late Lyon equaliser from Corentin Tolisso in a 1-1 draw in Turin to slip two points behind Sevilla.

"The pitch is disgusting, for us and for them", Ranieri said. It's important to concentrate because Copenhagen are well organised. As Squawka's post from this evening shows, Leicester's 2015/16 heroes are carrying on their odds-upsetting work into 2016/17 and have frustrated their group stage opponents thus far.

Musa's goal earned a valuable point for Leicester City against Tottenham and Ranieri believes the Nigeria worldwide is slowly understanding the Premier League.

Since defeat at Leicester, Copenhagen have won three successive games and are six points clear at the top of the Danish league. "We changed to 4-4-2 (in the) second half and were better".

All the more reason why coach Stale Solbakken is angry that his side had to play a Danish league game on Monday morning (Singapore time) - a 3-1 victory over FC Midtjylland.

"Brugge are down, but they want to do something, so it is not easy". "I don't think it would have mattered if they had gone into the game with a different result".
