Leicester manager Rodgers aiming to seal Europa League qualification

Brendan Rodgers hopes Leicester City can secure qualification for the Europa League knockouts.

The Foxes can clinch a spot with a win over Braga on Thursday,

"I've been very pleased. The group has good teams in it. Our objective starting out was to make sure we qualified," said Rodgers at his pre-match press conference.

"We want to continue that and qualify as early as we can, that would be great for us.

"You know when you play against other teams in this competition, they will be at a high level because they are used to winning.

Our away form has been very good, but we won't underestimate Braga, despite the result at home. We have to be ready for a tough game."
