King Power Stadium will host Thursday’s football game between Leicester City and Slavia Prague. The Foxes were anything but impressive in the goalless draw at Sinobo Stadium, with the team taking no more than one shot on target. Leicester City regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, with the team beating Aston Villa on the road, and, no doubt, they are capable of beating Slavia at their King Power Stadium.Despite failing to find the net in the victory over the Villans, top scorer Jamie Vardy will be the man to watch in the home team. Important midfielder James Maddison should be fit to face the Czech outfit. Since Slavia Prague are not regarded as good travellers, I am tempted to put our money on the Premier League side. It has to be noted that Leicester are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home in the Europa League.
There will be fireworks when Dinamo Zagreb and Krasnodar face each other in the Europa League last 32, return leg. Dinamo Zagreb did well to beat Krasnodar 3-2 in Russia, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in all competitions. The Croatian champions are with one foot in the Europa League last 16, but they should not be written off just yet.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Bruno Petkovic, who scored a brace in the first leg. Krasnodar, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Sochi in the Russian Cup, and given their shaky defence, I predict that Dinamo Zagreb are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Thursday evening. The Croatians recorded five wins in the previous six home games in the Europa League.
