Europa Conference League Preview: Leicester face tough quarter-final test against PSV

The Europa Conference League has reached the quarter-final stage, and some top clubs are still in the running to lift the trophy in the tournament’s inaugural edition.

Leicester City versus PSV Eindhoven is amongst the Europa Conference League first leg matches on Thursday and is available to watch via this soccer streams page.

The Foxes head into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw at Manchester United in the Premier League last weekend, and they will be keen to bag a lead against the Dutch outfit.

Brendan Rodgers’ side defeated Rennes 3-2 on aggregate in the previous round and are rated as one of the favourites to win the competition.

However, it would be foolish to underestimate the threat posed by PSV given they have mounted a serious challenge to Ajax in the Eredivisie title race this season.

They comfortably disposed of FC Copenhagen in the round of 16 and are likely to give Leicester plenty to think about at the King Power Stadium.

Elsewhere on Thursday, Roma head to Norway to face a Bodo/Glimt they seriously underestimated during the group stage.

Manager Jose Mourinho’s decision to field a weakened team backfired as the Norwegian champions won 6-1, and he is unlikely to make the same mistake this time around.

Marseille look a good bet to progress through their last-eight tie against PAOK, especially if Arkadiusz Milik continues his excellent form.

Milik has scored eight goals in his last six European games for Marseille and will fancy his chances of adding to his tally against the Greek side.

The remaining game could be a tight affair, with Feyenoord and Slavia Prague renewing acquaintances after meeting in the group stage.

Feyenoord won 2-1 in Rotterdam then drew 2-2 in Prague – results which suggest there will be little to choose between the two sides in the quarter-finals.
