Leicester will look to end a run of three games without a win when they travel to Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Foxes sealed their progress to the knock-out stage of the competition early, but a poor defeat and performance to Fulham last time out in the Premier League was unexpected.

They sit top of the group in Europe and fourth in the table domestically, but Brendan Rodgers will want a reaction after not winning a game since 8 November.

Zorya have won just one game in the group and cannot finish in the top two unless they win both their remaining games.

Here’s everything you need to know before kick-off.

When is the match?

The game kicks off at 5:55pm on Thursday, 3 December.

Where can I watch it?

The match will be shown live on BT Sport 1. Subscribers will be able to stream the match via the BT Sport app and desktop website.

What is the team news?

Vitalii Vernydub is suspended for Zorya, who are bottom of the group.

Leicester remain without Caglar Soyuncu, but Ricardo Pereira and Wilf Ndidi are close to a return and could feature here if the manager needs them to get some risk-free minutes. Timothy Castagne is out and Islam Slimani is unregistered.

Predicted line-ups

ZOR: Shevchenko, Favorov, Cvek, Hanna, Ciganiks, Yurchenko, Ivanisenya, Kochergin, Kabaev, Lunev, Gromov

LEI: Ward, Pereira, Morgan, Evans, Thomas, Mendy, Choudhury, Perez, Praet, Albrighton, Iheanacho

Odds

Zorya - 9/2

Draw - 3/1

Leicester - 3/4

Prediction

It might not be a classic given how little there is to play for. Escaping without injuries is job No. 1 for Rodgers and his team but they could do with a win after a couple of poor recent showings. Zorya 1-2 Leicester
