Leicester City will expect to complete their progression in the last-16 of the Europa League on Thursday night when they face Czech side Slavia Prague in the second leg of their tie.

Although the first leg ended in a 0-0 draw, the Foxes will feel that they had several chances to notch an away goal on the night and, back on home soil, the feeling is that a good showing should be enough to see off their opposition and extend an unbeaten home record in Europe to 10 matches - a run which stretches back to the 1997/98 UEFA Cup.

Leicester have been in good form of late, beating Aston Villa at the weekend to maintain their push for a Champions League spot through the Premier League. Brendan Rodgers is likely to stick with a strong line-up as they look to go deep into the competition.
