It is all to play for in the Europa League when Leicester City host Slavia Prague at the King Power Stadium in the second leg of the last-32 on Thursday.

Leicester City vs Slavia Prague Team News
James Maddison is injured and Kelechi Iheanacho suspended after accumulating his third booking of the tournament last week, meaning they join injured quintet James Justin, Wesley Fofana, Wes Morgan, Dennis Praet and Ayoze Perez on the sidelines.
The only absentee for Slavia is Tomas Holes, who went off injured after just 30 minutes of the first leg.
Leicester City vs Slavia Prague Preview
Slavia had arguably the better opportunities in the first leg but truthfully neither side looked like scoring in the Czech capital last Thursday, which was somewhat of a turn up for the books for Leicester in particular.
The Foxes are the fourth-top scorers in the Premier League with 44 goals to their name and struck nine times without conceding at the King Power Stadium during the Europa League group stage, which will give them plenty of confidence for this one.
Although the Prague side have a strong record in front of goal on a domestic scale, they have struggled in away European games, losing comfortably to Midtjylland, Bayer Leverkusen and Hapoel Be’er Sheva in the last six months and beating only a relegation-threatened Nice side.
Leicester City vs Slavia Prague Tips and Predictions
Leicester should be able to see off a Slavia side that struggles on their travels and the 6/4 (2.50) price with bet365 on Brendan Rodgers’ to win with a -1 handicap is the best bet for this Europa League clash.
