This Wednesday nights match saw Belgian champions Club Brugge host Premier League champions Leicester City for their first ever Champions League fixture.
Leicester City have never featured in the Champions League in any of the competitions format.
Their last European venture was a 4 – 1 defeat on aggregate to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Cup (Now Europa League).
Leicester City entered Group G as number 1 seeds, which saw them avoid powerhouses such as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

This is due to the Champions League’s new seeding system, where by winning one of the major leagues, you automatically get placed into pot 1.
The foxes were the first team to enter Group G and were shortly followed by Porto, Copenhagen and tonights opponents, Club Brugge.
Like Leicester City, Club Brugge have had a very shaky start to their season.
The Belgian champions currently sit 10th in the table after winning just 7 points from 6 games.
The foxes have had an unexpected loss of form since the return of the Premier League.
Defeats to both Hull City and Liverpool have seen Leicester win just 4 points from 4 games and are currently sitting just above the relegation zone in 16th.
It’s not all doom and gloom for foxes fans however as they can expect club record signing to start today’s game after not featuring during Saturday’s thrashing at Anfield.
Another point to take from the starting line up is summer signing Luis Hernandez coming in for Danny Simpson at right-back after Danny limped off during Saturday’s defeat.
