Leicester City 1 Porto 0: Slimani continues to haunt old foes

Leicester City 1 Porto 0: Slimani continues to haunt old foes

On his final appearance for Sporting before joining Leicester for a club-record fee $33.5 million in August, he scored in a 2-1 win over Porto.

Their second match will see the first Champions League game to be played in King Power Stadium - but it's also going to see the Foxes given a much, much more hard challenge.

Slimani scored twice on his Premier League debut for Leicester, a 3-0 win over Burnley, and while Ranieri was unaware of his nickname he knows the Algeria global has put Porto to the sword before.

Three of United's four goals came following corners and Ranieri said: "I spoke to players and they were scared".

"Islam is always ready in the box so I just put the ball in and he was there", Mahrez said.

- Not only has Slimani been on red hot form against Porto, his goal was his third in his first four games for Leicester - and all of them have been headers.

Claudio Ranieri is ready to unleash the "Dragon Slayer" on Porto as Leicester prepare for the first Champions League home game in their 132-year history.

"We have a lot of respect for Porto, they are a lot more experienced team in Europe".

"It was important to win because Porto are a very good team", he said.

In addition, Tesla needs to raise "a lot" more capital either by the end of 2016 or beginning of 2017, Chanos said. He described SolarCity's business model as "just plain uneconomic". "This is anything but", Chanos said of Tesla .


Kasper Schmeichel could return after a muscle strain but Nampalys Mendy continues to be sidelined with an ankle injury but could be available for Sunday's Premier League game against Southampton.

This match will serve as a real litmus test for Leicester City, and not just for their Champions League aspirations.

That's a run which isn't really reflected in an 11/1 anytime scorer quote, although for reasons stated above it's not a bet I'll be taking up on this occasion, perhaps more one to remember for forthcoming Bundesliga games.

Lastly, Sky TV and Virgin Media customers can also tune into BT Sport, via channel 414 and 532 respectively.

The attacking brilliance of winger Riyad Mahrez and striker Jamie Vardy, both of whom made it to the top five of the Premier League scoring chart, lit up the championship.

It can not be overlooked, however, that Porto have lost 14 and won none of 16 fixtures away to English clubs and they were held 1-1 at home against Copenhagen on matchday one.

Leicester's players upturned the established order in England last season.

Slimani scored twice on his Premier League debut for Leicester, a 3-0 win over Burnley, and while Ranieri was unaware of his nickname he knows the Algeria worldwide has put Porto to the sword before. One of the most important things, and we can not ever lose it, is our main idea. It is a new game.

'In the Champions League there are great teams and we happened to get three champions in the group phase. This might help them in getting an easy opponent in the last-16 and break their unwanted streak.
