Matchday 1 highlights: Leicester's dream start in BruggeHighlights: Leicester’s dream start in Brugge

Claudio Ranieri, Leicester manager
We have the chance to go through in the Champions League which is an enormous achievement for the club. Our fairy tale continues. We did something special last season and this season we are doing something special – for the first time in our lives we are playing in the Champions League and to go through to the knockout stage is fantastic.

When our opponent has their first chance they score a goal; last season when we had the first chance we scored a goal. I’m very happy about the Champions League matches, but the balance is not so good. I’m very frustrated with our Premier League form. Well try to win and [take] the next step, then go back in the Premier League and try to improve our position in the table.

Reporter’s view: Simon Hart (@UEFAcomSimonH)
Leicester’s opponents might be making life hard in the Premier League but so far Ranieri’s men have had no problem bouncing back in the UEFA Champions League – they suffered domestic defeats before each of their three Group G wins. On paper they should get the point needed to secure a last-16 place – after all, Brugge have never won in England, and are without a point in the group and without a goal from two previous away games. Can Vardy end his goal drought?

Bottom-placed Brugge are aiming to avoid what would be a club-record fifth straight defeat in a single European campaign. Read more in our extensive match background.
