Foot Predictions shows the Europa League clash on Thursday between Leicester City and Slavia Prague, including hunches, betting tips and possible lineups.
Leicester City host Slavia Prague on Thursday night with the two teams tied 0-0 after the first leg of their Europa League last 32.
Each team will be relatively satisfied with the outcome of the game in the Czech Republic, keeping the tie even before the game at King Power Stadium.
Brendan Rodgers surprised many Leicester supporters last week by naming a team in full force for the first leg of this tie, a decision made after several injuries sustained by important men.
However, despite the frustration of just winning a goalless draw, the extra confrontation did not stop the Foxes from defeating Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.
Given the lack of recovery time, Leicester was impressive against one of their domestic rivals, achieving a result that kept the club in third place in the first division.
While qualifying for next season’s Champions League remains a priority, Rodgers has shown in the Czech Republic that he is looking forward to winning this competition, savoring the black horse brand behind the tournament favorites.
Despite having lost just one of the last 16 games in all competitions, Rodgers knows that some defensive slips on Thursday could end his time on the European stage with immediate effect.
Slavia has lost some momentum in the championship action in recent times, drawing the three most recent games and seeing the lead at the top of the standings reduced to eight points.
However, Jindrich Trpisoxy you will feel that your team is in a better position than the hosts on Thursday, knowing that you can play freely in the East Midlands.
Slavia has a 12-game unbeaten run since losing 4-0 at Bayer Leverkusen in this competition in December.
Despite being the star of the show since the turn of the year, Jan Kuchta scored in just one of his last four matches.

All news from the teams
Rodgers will likely use many of his more experienced players for this game, just resting players who have recently returned from injury.
Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne fall into that category, while Kelechi Iheanacho is absent due to a game suspension.
Cengiz Under could replace with James Maddison if the ace needs to recover from some strokes suffered in the last matches.
Jakub Hromada expected to fill in for Tomas Holes after the midfielder was injured in the first leg.
The rest of the team should remain the same, with Trpisoxy feeling an opportunity to deepen the competition.
Possible initial line-up for Leicester City:
Schmeichel; Amartey, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Tielemans; Albrighton, Under, Barnes; Vardy
Possible initial line-up for Slavia Prague:
Kolar; Bah, Kudela, Zima, Boril; Provod, Hromada; Sima, Stanciu, Olayinka; Kuchta
Probability: Leicester City 2-1 Slavia Prague
Not scoring an away goal last week is not ideal for Leicester, who fear Slavia will be able to make the most of the East Midlands. However, Leicester can benefit from having to fight for victory, something that has become a habit this season.
