  • End of 2nd Half
FULL-TIME! 

Leicester go top of Group A with a comfortable 3-1 win over Legia Warsaw ahead of showdown with Napoli in December. But Wilfred Ndidi's header from a corner restored Leicester's two-goal advantage and Brendan Rodgers' side never looked back after that, putting an end to their four-game winless run in all competitions.

Perez tries to feed Barnes but Miszta comes out to collect it before the winger.

GOOD SAVE! Leicester break forward and Castagne gets a shot on goal but it's tipped over the bar by Miszta. The Belgian was offside, though, so his effort would not have counted anyway.

Visibility is now a slight problem at the King Power as a smoke bomb appears to have gone off.

YELLOW! For Thomas for a late challenge on Muci. Mladenovic's cross into the box comes to nothing.

60' 

Rodgers looks set to make some changes to his Leicester side. The Foxes are not playing with any great intensity at the moment and appear happy to hold onto their two-goal lead at the moment. A cross from Daka finds Lookman, but his acrobatic flick is easy for Miszta to save.

57' 

Emreli fires a vicious effort on goal from range but it's well over the bar.

53' 

Legia are passing the ball around in their own half but are struggling to cobbe together a meaningful attack.

50'

47' 

Lookman's low cross into the box is gathered by Mizta. Legia will want to start quickly if they are to stand any chance of getting back into this.

46' 

We are back underway! There's one change for Legia. Holownia is on for Johansson.

  • End of 1st Half
HALF-TIME! 

Leicester with a good lead at the break thanks to goals from Daka, Maddison and Ndidi. This game is far from over, though, as Legia have offered a real threat going forwards themselves in this eventful European encounter. Second half coming up!

45' 

TWO minutes of added time at the end of the first half.

45' 

Barnes sprints into the box and tries to cut it back for Daka but the pace on the ball is too quick for him. Barnes' pacey, direct runs have terrified the Legia defence.

45' 

Castagne commits a foul on Legia's right flank and the Polish side have a chance to get a goal back before the break from this free-kick opportunity. Mladenovic, who has been heavily involved in everything positive Legia has done this evening, offers up his worst contribution with a wild free-kick which he lashes over the bar.

43' 

CRUCIAL INTERCEPTION! Muci is well in the Leicester box and tries to slide a ball into Mlandenovic to tap it in but Soyuncu gets in at the nick of time to boot behind for a corner! The following corner is expertly cleared by Castagne after a flick on at the near post.

41' 

Slisz stays down after a late challenge from Soumare. It's a poor challenge but he escapes a booking.

  • Filip Mladenovic
    Yellow cardFilip MladenovicLegia WarszawMladenovic's cross takes a deflection off Castagne as he tries to find Muci and the ball flies off the pitch. YELLOW! Referee Aytekin awards a goal-kick which is the wrong thing to do and then decides to book Mladenovic for his protests.

29' 

How will Leicester respond? Well, they have a free-kick which Maddison will take. He takes it quickly using the outside of his right boot but he gets it wrong and Mszta claims it way before Daka can get to it.

  • Filip Mladenovic

A Legia free-kick almost finds Mladenovic in the box, but it is just above him and the ball flies out for a goal-kick.

18' 

Legia have their first corner of the evening but Leicester clear their lines. Barnes leads a counter-attack but Ribeiro does well to make an important interception. All of Leicester's attacks are coming through Barnes.

16' 

Maddison fouls Luquinhas and Legia can finally get on the ball. Napoli and Spartak Moscow played each other last night with the Russian club winning it 2-1. It means as it stands Leicester are top of Group C on eight points with Spartak and Napoli both on seven. Legia are on six in fourth.

13' 

Leicester continue to push forward for a second. The hosts have been completely on top with 77 per cent possession so far. Legia have offered little threat going forward.

  • Patson Daka
    GoalPatson DakaLeicester CityGOAL! DAKA FIRES LEICESTER IN FRONT! It's a lovely finish from Daka to grab his sixth Leicester goal! Thomas drives forwards and lays it off to Barnes. The winger uses his strength to cut inside and plays a deflected pass which lands at the feet of the Zambian who tucks his shot low into the bottom corner. Leicester are ahead!

8' 

Ndidi's pass finds Barnes on the left flank. He looks for Daka at the back post but his cross just too far for him. Barnes has been Leicester's liveliest player so far in these opening stages.

6' 

Barnes lofts a ball over the top of the Legia backline which Daka attempts to run onto, but it's just too far ahead of him and Miszta comes out to claim the loose ball.

5' 

Leicester are dominating possession and are camped inside Legia's half. The visitors are just happy to sit back and soak it all up for now.

3' 

SHOT! Leicester have an early corner and Maddison swings it in. It comes out to Soumare who crosses in but again it's cleared. Maddison then tries to bend a shot into the top corner but his effort flies high and wide.

2' 

Leicester start fast and Lookman feeds a ball to Barnes but his touch is loose. Miszta looks to collect it but he hesitantly lets it go and Legia clear. At the other end Slisz's low driven strike from outside the box is gathered by Schmeichel.

We are underway under the lights on a chilly night at the King Power Stadium!

19:57 

Both teams are out onto the pitch. The tifos are out. Pre-prepared flames are going off by the corner flags and kick-off is just moments away!

19:55 

A late change to the Leicester XI this evening...

19:49 

Patson Daka leads the Leicester attack tonight keen to work his way into Brendan Rodgers' Premier League plans. The 23-year-old has been used in all four of Leicester's Europa League games so far and has five goals this season, with four of those coming against Spartak Moscow on October 20. Daka has not featured in the Premier League for Leicester since the end of October. A good performance tonight may change Rodgers' mind.

19:42 

Here is a reminder of how the two sides line up this evening...

19:30 

Legia Warsaw have arrived. The Polish outfit beat Leicester 1-0 the first time these two met on September 30 and will fancy their chances against the Foxes again tonight. Leicester have failed to win in their last four competitive matches which is their longest win drought since December 2020.

19:24 

THREE changes to the Leicester team that lost 3-0 to Chelsea on Saturday. James Maddison, Patson Daka and Luke Thomas return to the Leicester lineup.
