A point is all Leicester City need to create history in the Champions League. The Premier League champions, making their UCL bow this season, will qualify for the last 16 if they pick up at least a draw at home against Club Brugge on Tuesday.

Leicester might be struggling in the Premier League this season, where they currently languish in 14th, just two points off the relegation zone. However, the Champions League has been a different story.

In their four matches so far, Leicester have managed to win three and draw one, putting them on the brink of qualifying for the knockout rounds of the Champions League for the first time in the club's history.

That is more than motivation enough for Claudio Ranieri's men to do what is necessary come Tuesday at the King Power Stadium.

"It's massive, it really is, but I don't think we can take anything for granted," Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, who hasn't quite found his form from last season, said. "We know it's going to be a tough test.

"We know that if we play our football, especially how we did when we played them away from home, then we will get the point. Hopefully, it'll be the win that secures our qualification.

"It would be an unbelievable feeling to get to the knockout stages. You get a little break from the Champions League for a bit and then you're looking forward to the draw and who you'll be facing in the knockout stages."

Leicester, as they have so often this season, are coming off a loss in the Premier League, when they went down to Watford on Saturday, and while Ranieri cannot explain his team's misfortunes, the Italian is confident of his players reacting in the manner he expects.

"For me it is important to see my players training well, fighting every match, you have to accept the result," Ranieri said while talking of the 2-1 defeat to Watford. "When we conceded two fantastic goals, what can you do?

"Now for us it's important to react again, because all the previous games before the Champions League we lost and then we had to react again. That means our character is very strong."

Brugge have very little to play for, having failed to pick up a single point so far. They will need to win their two remaining matches to stand any chance of sneaking into the Europa League position.

"We want to get off zero points," Brugge manager Michel Preud'homme said. "We will do everything to take a point – or three – somewhere. Even if Leicester have problems in England, in Europe against [clubs like] Brugge and Porto they do well, and it means the level of the Premier League is so high that even if they are a little bit less [than last season] they are still very good in Europe."
