Team News
Leicester City
Rodgers defended his decision to bring in Caglar Soyuncu for last week's trip to Ukraine, even though the Turkish defender lasted just 17 minutes before being forced off with yet another injury.

Soyuncu is now expected to spend at least another few days on the sidelines, while Ricardo Pereira has also suffered an injury setback of his own and will be on the treatment table for up to a fortnight.

However, Wilfred Ndidi should start this one after coming off the bench at Bramall Lane, while Dennis Praet, Cengiz Under and Harvey Barnes are all set for recalls to Rodgers's starting lineup.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Justin, Morgan, Evans, Thomas; Ndidi, Praet, Choudhury; Under, Iheanacho, Barnes
Leicester City Europa League form: WWWDL
Leicester City form (all competitions): WLDLLW

AEK Athens
AEK Athens left-back Emmanuel Insua was cautioned for the third time in the tournament in last week's defeat to Braga and will serve a suspension on Thursday.

Seventeen-year-old Mario Mitaj could therefore be in line for a start at the King Power, but the more experienced Helder Lopes is also an option for Carrera.

Apart from the suspended Insua, AEK Athens have no other absentees for this dead rubber, meaning that the Greek side can afford to rotate with their league campaign in mind.
AEK Athens possible starting lineup:
Tsintosas; Paulinho, Nedelcearu, Hnid, Mitaj; Mantalos, Simoes, Szymanski; Albanis, Oliveira, Garcia
AEK Athens Europa League form: WLLWLL
AEK Athens form (all competitions): WWLWLL

Prediction: Leicester City 3-1 AEK Athens
