RANIERI: Copenhagen to decide our Champions League fate

Claudio Ranieri expects his Leicester City players to produce their best performances for the two crucial Champions League clashes against Copenhagen.

The Premier League champions host Copenhagen on Tuesday, before travelling to Denmark for the return game on November 2.

Ranieri is aware those matches will be crucial in deciding Leicester’s chances of progression in the competition and wants his team fully focused.

“The next two matches [in the Champions League] are very important and will tell us what we can do,” manager Ranieri said at his pre-match media conference.

“We must do the best performance of the season. It’s very important for us to get three points.

“We have had normal words, normal training. Just recharged, clean the mind and think about the next match.”

Leicester, who have now lost four straight away matches in the league after Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Chelsea, failed to register a shot on target at Stamford Bridge as Riyad Mahrez, Danny Simpson and Islam Slimani were all rested with the Copenhagen clash in mind.
