Leicester will be determined to make the most of their Europa League place in 2021/22 as they kick-start their campaign with a box-office visit of Napoli.
The Foxes won Group G last season but were underwhelming in the knockout rounds as they failed to score a goal in two legs against Slavia Prague in the Round of 32.
Brendan Rodgers will be keen to mark his team’s rise to the upper echelons of the English game with a steady flow of silverware and will see the Europa League as a genuine opportunity.
Leicester have been handed an awkward but winnable Group C filled with Napoli, Legia Warsaw and Spartak Moscow.
Napoli are one of three Serie A teams with a 100 per cent winning record after three games this term – alongside Jose Mourinho’s Roma and AC Milan. They boast strong pedigree in European competitions and will hope to go far this time around.

Our prediction: Leicester v Napoli
Leicester must start approaching European games with an air of ‘they’re more scared of you than you are of them’.
They have earned their place on the continental stage following back-to-back impressive seasons, plus an FA Cup trophy and Community Shield among it all.
The Foxes are capable of beating anyone on their day – just ask Chelsea and Manchester City – and should head into this one determined to exert their growing power. Saying that, Napoli are a tough nut to crack and won’t go down lightly.
