Verdy Is Good To Return For Leicester In Athens

Posted by

After recovering from a calf injury, Jamie Vardy is expected to return to Leicester’s starting XI for Thursday’s Europa League game against AEK Athens.
After an hour, the striker came on and scored the winner in Sunday’s 1-0 victory against Arsenal.

While Caglar Soyuncu and Wilfred Ndidi (both groin) and Nampalys Mendy (thigh) are also out, Ricardo Pereira is out with an Achilles injury. Leicester started Group G at home to Zorya Luhansk with a 3-0 victory.

Thursday is their first European trip since April 2017, when they lost 1-0 in the Champions League quarter-finals at Atletico Madrid. It was a long journey back to European football, and we were hoping for a Champions League match, but you don’t always get what you want.
