Schlupp and Amartey start for Leicester 0-0 draw with Copenhagen

Published on: 02 November 2016

Ghanaian duo Jeffrey Schlupp and Daniel Amartey were handed starting berths in Leicester City's scoreless draw with Danish champions FC Copenhagen on Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

Amartey was returned to the starting line-up after missing the weekend's league encounter in the EPL while Schlupp made only his second first team start in all competitions.

Amartey lasted the entire duration of the clash against his former side and his discipline with his defensive midfield duties saw him avoid a booking in a feisty midfield battle at the Telia Parken.

Shinji Okazaki came on for Schlupp in the 71st minute.

Leicester qualified for the knock out stages of the UCL after a 3-0 drubbing of Copenhagen in the reverse fixture.
