Leicester City are looking to put one foot in the Europa Conference League final on Thursday when they host Roma on Thursday night.
With their domestic season all but over, the Foxes will be desperate to get off to a good start in this semi-final. Brendan Rodgers has been boosted by the return of Jamie Vardy, but Jonny Evans’ likely absence is a significant blow.
Here is the starting lineup that Rodgers seems most likely to turn to for this one…
Kasper Schmeichel (GK) – Schmeichel is the skipper and has barely missed a minute of action across all competitions this season.
Ricardo Pereira (RB) – James Justin has been getting closer to his best recently but for now Pereira remains first in the pecking order. Netted the winner against PSV in the previous round.
Caglar Soyuncu (CB) – With Jonny Evans unfortunately absent, Soyuncu will be drafted into the backline. Has improved a little recently after a terrible first half of the season.
Wesley Fofana (CB) – Has reminded everyone just how talented he is since returning from a leg break recently.
Timothy Castagne (LB) – Castagne is comfortably retaining his place in the big games ahead of Luke Thomas at the moment.
Youri Tielemans (CM) – Needs to continue proving his worth in big games like this if he wants to secure his big move this summer.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (CM) – Has comfortably been Leicester’s best midfielder recently and is likely to secure the club’s player of the season award.
Ademola Lookman (RW) – Leicester seemingly remain unconvinced about signing Lookman on a permanent transfer. More performances like his recent ones will help convince the Foxes to take the plunge.
James Maddison (AM) – Scored an excellent goal to level up the scores against PSV, his third in the competition. Could be vital again here.
Harvey Barnes (LW) – Barnes has been impressive in this competition this season, netting twice.
Jamie Vardy (ST) – He’s back and Rodgers will likely get him straight back into the starting XI after a promising substitute appearance.
