LEICESTER return to Europa Conference League action when they welcome PSV Eindhoven to the King Power.

The Foxes will be full of confidence having held Manchester United to a draw in their last outing.

And they had to fight hard to get to the last eight of the UECL by beating a well-oiled Rennes in the previous round.

But their opponents, PSV’s name holds weight across many leagues as they are no strangers to European competition – especially now with ex-Man United star Ruud Van Nistelrooy set to take charge.

This is something which Copenhagen found out for themselves in March during the last-16 of the tournament.
