Leicester vs Zorya Luhansk
Leicester face a trip to Zorya Luhansk on Thursday evening.
The Foxes head into the tie knowing that a victory will all but ensure they top their Europa League group.
With two games to play, Leicester are sitting top of Group G, three points above 2nd-place Braga with a staggering plus-eight goal difference.
And Luhansk, on paper at least, should prove a fairly easy side to beat for Brendan Rodgers and co.
Luhansk are currently sat bottom of Group G with just three points amassed from their opening four group games.
Leicester also beat them pretty comfortably in the reverse fixture back in October.

Pereira to return?
Ahead of the tie, Leicester look set to be handed a big boost on the personnel front.
Ricardo Pereira has been out of action since March 9th after suffering a serious knee injury in a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa.
The Portuguese was in fine form pre-injury and his absence clearly impacted Leicester.
However, the Telegraph are now reporting that the right-back is in contention to feature vs Luhansk on Thursday evening.
In even more positive news for the Midlands-based outfit, it is added that Caglar Soyuncu and Wilfred Ndidi, both of whom suffered injuries recently, are also set to join the travelling squad for the clash with Luhansk:
