What to watch for in all of Tuesday's Champions League clashes

Doing well in Europe is great but they don't want to be embarrassed in the Premier League. Claudio Ranieri might want to consider something similar.

There is not much to remember in terms of Leicester City's European adventures other than the scenes at the end of their 3-0 over Club Brugge in their first game.

"The next two are very important for us and will tell us what we can do in the Champions League".

Mahrez and Slimani were two of four changes made to the Leicester side that lost heavily at Chelsea on Saturday. Three wins from three is more than Ranieri could have wished for.

"Copenhagen": whether to continue to win, "fox"?

Copenhagen are now tucked a meagre two points behind Leicester in second place after scoring a commendable draw in Portugal. The $36-million-man was signed to make an impact in opposition boxes at this level and so it is proving. Yet up until Mahrez's goal, Leicester had looked disjointed and they were fortunate not to concede within minutes of taking the lead.

"We have had a chat and things have been said and resolved, now we move on", the goalkeeper said ahead of Tuesday's game at the King Power Stadium. It was a bright moment in a game of low quality.

They created little and struggled to get a stranglehold in midfield as their Danish opponents confidently stroked the ball around the pitch.

Copenhagen nearly drew level shortly before half-time when Andreas Cornelius escaped the attention of Robert Huth at a corner, but his flicked header drifted wide of the right post.

Leicester City have remained consistent in their approach with Luiz Hernandez expected to start at right-back providing a set piece threat with his long throws. It's the same cast of characters, just a different setting.

Jamie Vardy. The England global has struggled to replicate his form of last season, with only two goals to his name this season, excluding the Community Shield.

The Leicester City players have met to address their disappointing form in the Premier League and clear the air before tonight's Champions League game at home to Copenhagen.

A defiant opponent who are now 23 matches undefeated in all competitions, the Foxes are set for a tough clash with the Danes.
