As Leicester City hold on to a historic win, they see themselves remain at the top of Group G, ahead of Porto who remain on just 1 point after 2 games.
A fantastic display of determination, skill and most of all, heart, this Leicester side has once again defied odds.
Leicester City’s next opponents in the Champions League Copenhagen also won their match after beating Club Brugge 4 – 0.
This means that Leicester City now sit at the top of Group G on 6 points, with Copenhagen on 4 and Porto with only 1 point.
A completely opposite display to what we saw on Saturday in Leicester City’s clash with Manchester United, Leicester dominated the majority of the game.
Looking stronger from set-pieces, Ranieri’s men rarely looked uncomfortable in their lead.
The last 10 minutes were tense, as is any match that is 1 – 0 with 10 minutes to go. However the players dug deep and used every last drop of energy to preserve their lead.
The same energy and determination that won them the Premier League title last season.
Slimani once again came out trumps on FC Porto, a team which he has now scored 7 goals in 7 games against.
Now we know why he’s called the ‘Dragon Slayer’
Leicester City host Southampton this weekend in the Premier League before the international break which will see them out of action until the 15th of October when they travel to Stamford Bridge to face former club member N’Golo Kante.
Fans will be hoping Ranieri has found a solution to their leaking defence, however it is apparently that their form at home is a polar opposite to their traveling form.
Should they play as they did today, fans will be optimistic that that will seal the deal.
