Leicester City return to Europa League action on Thursday, after a difficult fortnight in the league, to face Group C leaders Legia Warsaw.
The Foxes will be looking for their first win of the continental campaign after picking up just a point in their last three Premier League games, while their hosts have also struggled domestically but claimed maximum points on opening night.
Team news
Legia Warsaw
• Due to a serious knee injury sustained over the summer, Bartosz Kapustka will miss a reunion with former club Leicester.
• Arthur Boruc, a former Bournemouth goalkeeper, is unbeaten in three previous meetings with Leicester.
Leicester City
• The only injury concerns for a struggling Leicester side are Wesley Fofana and James Justin.
• Jonny Evans was an unused substitute at the weekend and should play on Thursday as Brendan Rodgers manages his comeback from injury.
• James Maddison, who was benched against Burnley on Saturday, should be back in the starting lineup here.
• Wilfred Ndidi was suspended on Thursday following his late dismissal against Napoli in the previous round of the competition.

• Legia Warszawa came from behind to defeat Spartak Moscow 1-0 in their Europa League debut in Russia. That result sparked a three-game winning streak, which ended with a loss at the weekend.
• Although a 2-2 draw with Napoli is not a bad result, Leicester led 2-0 in the second half. Leicester has only won one of their last five games, and that was against a lower-tier opponent.
• On paper, Leicester will be favored, but their recent results indicate that they may struggle once again here.
Legia’s promising start to the season may come to an end soon, as they clearly have defensive issues and face a Leicester side with significant squad depth.
Even if ageless striker Jamie Vardy takes a well-deserved rest, the visitors have a plethora of attacking options that, with a flash of inspiration, can take the game away from the hosts.
Legia Warsaw possible starting lineup:
Miszta; Jedrzejczyk, Wieteska, Nawrocki, Mladenovic; Josue, Slisz, Martins; Lopes, Muci; Emreli
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Soumare, Tielemans; Perez, Maddison, Barnes; Daka
Our Prediction: Legia Warsaw 1-2 Leicester City
