Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is hopeful that his side can put up some good performances and make the knockout stages of the Champions League.
The Foxes are set to make their first ever Champions League appearance on Wednesday as they take on Club Brugge on the road. Ranieri is hoping to get off to a good start in the competition after some disappointing performances in the Premier League. Leicester is coming off a 4-1 loss to Liverpool over the weekend.
“We know it is very important, these matches, because there are two positions to go into the knockout, but also the third position is good for us,” Ranieri said.
“We need to make experience. It is important for us to go over Christmas and continue to play in Europe. Of course we want to go through to the knockout stages of the Champions League and if it is not possible, we want to go into the Europa League.
“Of course we have to change something [for this game], but we can’t change our style. If we change our style, we don’t give 100 percent of Leicester football. Then we have to understand the match.
“It is good when the players believe in something. I think we wrote a fantastic fairytale last season because no one, including ourselves, believed it was possible at the start.
“I think it is impossible, because there are so many big teams involved in this competition and to win the Champions League we have to write another big fairytale, the second story.”
