Leicester star confident of qualification

Liam Hanna by Liam Hanna @LiamPHanna - 0 597

Marc Albrighton is confident that Leicester will qualify for the knock-out stage of the Champions League after the Premier League champions 100 per cent start to life in Europe's biggest club competition.

The winger scored the club's first ever goal in the Champions League in their 3-0 win over Club Brugge and it's fair to say that Albrighton and co have shown no sign of nerves on Europe's biggest stage.

Now, Albrighton is confident that Leicester can get the results to see them advance to the knock-out stage of the competition.

"We've given ourselves a great chance," he said. "We have four tough games coming up and if we win our home games then I think we'll qualify. It's a long way in the future but that's definitely our aim.

"We said before the competition started we needed to make this place a fortress and we certainly showed that against a top Porto side and hopefully we can do it against Copenhagen".

Leicester also made history in the competition, becoming the first English team to win their first two Champions League games, something of which the former Villa man is very proud.

"We said before the competition started we needed to make this place a fortress and we certainly showed that against a top Porto side and hopefully we can do it against Copenhagen," he added.
