Leicester to kick off!!!
The players take a moment to remember Diego Maradona who passed away yesterday at the age of 60
Both teams make their way out to the pitch with kick off less than five minutes away!!!!
Choudhury is making his second appearance in the Europa League this evening. He will be keen to show Rodgers what he can bring to the side, having not started a game in the Premier League
The Leicester City warm up is well under way at the Estádio Municipal de Braga
But the Braga boss will know his team's form against English opposition doesn't make for good reading. Their record of 21 matches against English teams is W7 D3 L11. Five of those victories have come in Portugal, four in a row preceding a 3-1 defeat by Manchester United in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League group stage
A win former Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal would see his side go level on points with the Foxes at the top of Group G, winning their third Europa League match of the campaign
Rodgers has given Iheanacho the nod this evening up top. But it's not surprising given he has been directly involved in six goals in the competition this season (three goals & three assists), the joint-most of any player alongside Lille's Yusuf Yazıcı (six goals).
Braga have been on an impressive run of their own, winning seven of their last eight matches in all competitions, with their 4-0 loss to Leicester their only setback in recent weeks. They come into tonight's game having recorded a win over the weekend, against Trofense 2-1 in the Portuguese Cup
Leicester will be looking to get back to winning ways again this evening, after their impressive run of six consecutive wins in all competitions came to an end on Saturday night as they lost 3-0 to an injury ravaged Liverpool in the Premier League.
Rodgers was clear before the match "I've been very pleased. The group has good teams in it. Our objective was to make sure we qualified," he added "We want to qualify as early as we can, that would be great for us."
And here is the home side's starting line up.. Can they this be the group of players that deny Leicester their early ticket to the knockout stages?
Team news is already in for Leicester City!!!
Kelechi Iheanacho who has been in impressive form in the competition starts, while Jamie Vardy and James Maddison take their palces on the bench.
Good evening and welcome to LIVE updates of the Europa League Group G clash between Braga and Leicester City. Last time these two sides met the Foxes ran rampant, bagging four goals. But Brendan Rodgers can expect a much tougher test this evening, as the Portuguse outfit will no doubt be fielding a much stronger side than the one traveled to The King Power stadium three weeks ago. Kick off 17:55 GMT. All the build up and team news to follow….
