Leicester have been largely untroubled during their European campaign thus far, conceding just once while netting five goals of their own.

However, the visit of the Portuguese side represents a real test of their credentials with Thursday night’s opponents boasting an identical record to their hosts.

With both sides struggling with indifferent form on the domestic front, a morale boosting win against their biggest rivals in the group could prove to be the ideal tonic.

It promises to be an exciting clash between two very good teams.

Our prediction: Leicester v Braga

With both teams sporting perfect records in the competition, this promises to be one of the most exciting clashes of the week.

You can’t help but feel that the English side just about edge it though, and should have the firepower to maintain that unblemished.

Braga, however, won’t be in the mood for handing out favours and could make life very difficult for their hosts.

Our prediction: Leicester 2 – 1 Braga
