The 29-year-old Danish international, who signed a new Leicester deal in the summer, posed for a picture at full time with Iker Casillas as he took the chance to meet a man who was one of his inspirations growing up.
Posting the picture of him with Casillas to his Instagram page, Schmeichel wrote:
"What a night! Amazing result and unbelievable atmosphere! Very special night for me playing against one of my boyhood idols."
