Leicester City grabbed a valuable point on the road in the Champions League on Wednesday, as they played a scoreless draw against FC Copenhagen.
The Foxes retained their spot at the top of Group G, and are yet to concede a single goal. With 10 points in four matches, they are in an excellent position to advance to the knockout stages. Manager Claudio Ranieri was pleased to get the away point.
“I’m very happy because at the beginning we were waiting for this kind of performance. Copenhagen wanted to push and to score immediately and they put us under pressure with the crowd.
“We stopped very well all the crosses and Kasper [Schmeichel] didn’t make any saves [early in the game],” Ranieri said. “Then I changed the formation to 4-4-1-1 and we played much better in the second half.
“Of course in the end both teams could score and win the match. Kasper made a very good save and we had two or three chances but the last pass wasn’t so good. Kasper gave us two points [in the home game with a late save to keep it 1-0] and today he won us one point. It’s very important for us because 10 points is not enough, but it’s a good point tonight.
“It’s another clean sheet and for this reason we have one point in Copenhagen against a good team and a very well organized team. I’m very very satisfied.”
Leicester tops the group on 10 points, three points ahead of second-placed Porto and five points ahead of third-placed Copenhagen.
