    FT: Leicester 3-1 Legia! A potentially vital game in a tight UEFA Europa League group ends in a stylish victory for Leicester, sending them top of the group and two points clear of fourth-placed Legia ahead of the final Matchday. The Foxes fully deserve the win after a display showing the hosts at their electric attacking best at times, although there were a few nervy moments after Mladenovic pounced on the rebound when Schmeichel stopped Emreli's first-half penalty. It's all set up for a thrill

    Leicester's second-half performances at home in this Europa League campaign have been their undoing. You really get the sense that the next goal is pivotal: either Legia have a clear route back into the contest or it's three points wrapped up for Rodgers' men.

    GOAL for Leicester! Superb strike by Maddison! Lookman feeds Maddison from the right, leaving the fleet-footed playmaker with plenty to do under pressure from two defenders. He performs a beguiling Cruyff turn to create space, then fires a fierce shot into the far corner of the net. Leicester have a second!
  • 17'
    Up, up and away for Leicester. Coach Rodgers was punching the air on the sideline.

    GOAL for Leicester! The Foxes have the lead! Thomas wins the ball in a central position on the halfway line, driving forward and releasing Barnes on the left flank. There's a touch of fortune to his cross bobbling through to Daka in front of goal, and the in-form forward seizes the chance to prod beyond Miszta from close range. A dream start for the Foxes!

    Daka is penalised for a foul on Wieteska.

    Schmeichel and Jedrzejczyk, the two captains, come together for the coin toss and we're about to start!
  • PRVW
    What a great atmosphere at King Power Stadium! The UEFA Europa League anthem is now playing...
  • PRVW
    It's only a few minutes before kick-off... The players are getting ready in the tunnel!
  • PRVW
    Both teams are now out and warming up as the fans continue to filter in.
  • PRVW
    German Deniz Aytekin is the referee for this match, while also German Harm Osmers is the VAR.
  • PRVW
    Braving temperatures that are not far above zero, there's a decent crowd on the concourse outside the Leicester City Stadium tonight, fans of both teams much in evidence.
  • PRVW
    With his four goals on Matchday 3, Daka became Leicester's all-time joint top scorer in UEFA competition – alongside team-mates Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy, who missed a penalty on Matchday 4 against Spartak.
  • PRVW
    Evans will make his 40th UEFA club competition appearance by starting for Leicester tonight.
  • PRVW
    The teamsheets are in: as usual, Leicester will be lining up in a 4-3-3, but expect Daka and Barnes to rotate between the centre and the left. Despite the talk yesterday of 4-3-3, it seems that Legia Warszawa will set up in an ultra-defensive 5-4-1.
  • PRVW
    Legia XI: Miszta (GK); Mladenovic, Wieteska, Jedrzejczyk, Johansson, Ribeiro; Luquinhas, Martins, Slisz, Muci; Emrelli.
