It is a historic first Champions League match at King Power Stadium, as Leicester City look to build on a fantastic Matchday 1 triumph over Club Brugge. However, Porto will be licking the wounds after only being able to manage a draw against a 10-man Copenhagen at home. That makes for an interesting fixture and the question of whether the Foxes can continue the miracle.
The Foxes are on the back of a heavy 4-1 defeat against mighty Manchester United from Saturday and will be looking to get to winning ways. Porto are a pro in Champions League whereas Leicester City are contending in the Premier club competition 0f Europe for the first time ever. King Power stadium will experience a Champions League game for the first time. It is indeed a historic fixture for the Premier League holders and Claudio Ranieri would be desperate to mark this with a win.
Here is the predicted Leicester City lineup vs FC Porto.
Kasper Schmeichel is doubtful for the game which means that German stopper Ron-Robert Zieler will keep his place under the bar. Danny Simpson will keep his place in the right-back position.
Skipper Wes Morgan will be partnered by Robert Huth at the heart of the defence. Austrian international full-back Christian Fuchs will start in the left-back position.
The summer signing from Nice, Nampalys Mendy is still out with an injury. He is still a few weeks ago from his return to full fitness which means that the central midfield duo is likely to remain the same. Danny Drinkwater will start at the heart of the park alongside Daniel Amartey.
Riyad Mahrez is an undisputed starter on the right flank and will be looking to cause troubles with his creativity. Marc Albrighton is likely to keep his place on the left flank.
Islam Slimani had a dream debut in the Premier League with a brace against Burnley but was pretty much silent against Manchester United. The Algerian knows Porto inside out from his Sporting Lisbon days and will be looking to trouble the Portuguese giants. The Algerian target man will start as the target man.
Jamie Vardy has not done really well this season. The Englishman was one of the key reasons why Leicester City created history last season. The English international will start alongside Slimani up front and will be looking to do the damage with his pace.
