Leicester City vs Napoli Preview and Livestream

Leicester missed out on the UEFA Champions League spots last season on the last gameweek. While the UCL is the prime competition in Europe, one good thing to come out of it was that Leicester entered a competition they stood a chance of winning under Brendan Rodgers. They are currently top of their group in Group C with 8 points but the group is very tight currently.

Napoli are in third at 7 points while Spartak Moscow are at 7 points as well. Legia Warsaw are not far behind in fourth at 6 points. Long story short, Leicester need to avoid defeat in Italy in order to qualify for the knockout rounds, which would be a tough task. The two teams drew 2-2 at the King Power Stadium earlier this season in what remains as their only ever head-to-head match in history,
