Brendan Rodgers’ men head to Czech Republic to face a Slavia Prague side that has gone unbeaten since early December.

There are a handful of Europa League fixtures on Thursday that have changed venue due to coronavirus restrictions – but thankfully for Leicester this is not one of them.  

The Foxes themselves are on a four-game unbeaten streak that includes Saturday’s 3-1 victory over defending English champions Liverpool.

And Rodgers will no doubt have his eye on European honours this season, with the domestic title race running away from his troops over the past month.

Slavia Prague v Leicester team news

Slavia Prague: Boss Jindrich Trpisovsky could keep the same XI that beat Pardubice 3-0 at the weekend, with top scorer Jan Kuchta likely to lead the line once again.

Kuchta bagged a double at the weekend and was subbed off on 70 minutes to earn some rest ahead of Thursday’s game. Trpisovsky did the same with Abdallah Sima and Peter Olayinka – Slavia’s two other highest goalscorers in the league this season.

Leicester: Timothy Castagne could feature here but is unlikely to be risked as he works his way back from injury.

Rogers is definitely without Dennis Praet, Wesley Fofana, James Justin and Wes Morgan. Ayoze Perez appears unlikely to feature.

Our prediction: Slavia Prague v Leicester

Slavia are in decent form right now and their forward line could well cause Leicester problems, which means Rodgers is likely to start his usual back line here.

Going forward the Foxes will have to be clinical. If the boss decides to rest the likes of James Maddison and Jamie Vardy then their replacements must keep up the tempo and not let their hosts settle.

Leicester have enough quality to earn a narrow away win and take that advantage back home for the second leg next week.

Our prediction: Slavia Prague 1-2 Leicester (8/1 at bet365)
