Draw edges Leicester closer to knockout stages

Kasper Schmeichel

Kasper Schmeichel is yet to concede a goal in this season’s Champions League

Premier League champions Leicester edged closer to the Champions League knockout stages by claiming a goalless draw at FC Copenhagen.

The best chance of a lacklustre match came in the 90th minute as Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel dived to his right to push away Andreas Cornelius’s header.

The closest the visitors came to scoring was when winger Jeffrey Schlupp’s deflected shot dribbled into the hands of keeper Robin Olsen.

Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester, who have won three and drawn one of their four Group H games, need only a point from their final two games to reach the last 16.
