Leicester drew 1-1 at home vs Spartak on MD 4 which dropped them to the bottom of the table in their group.
Amartey and Moses scored for either side to ensure a share of the spoils.
With 5 points from 4 matches, Leicester needs to win both their remaining matches to keep their qualification hopes alive.
On the other hand, Legia Warszawa were beaten convincingly at home 4-1 by Napoli to put their hopes of qualification hanging by a thread.
Emreli’s first half effort for Legia turned out to be a consolation effort as Zielinski, Mertens, Lozano and Ounas’ second half goals inflicted a 2nd loss on the hosts.
Legia is in 3rd place with 6 points from 4 matches and like their opponents need to win their remaining matches to keep their hopes alive.Hence, it is an all or nothing situation where both teams only have one option ahead.
