Leicester Break Champions League Defensive Record
The Foxes have now kept clean sheets in each of their four matches during their debut campaign in the competition – a feat no other side has ever managed!
Leicester City may have missed the chance to secure their place in the last-16 of the Champions League in Copenhagen, but they still did enough to break a competition record.
In drawing 0-0 with the Danish champions, the Foxes became the first side in Champions League history to keep clean sheets in their first four matches in the competition.
Only Parma in 1997-98 and Malaga in 2012-13 had previously failed to concede in their opening three games, but their record has now been taken by Claudio Ranieri’s miracle workers.
They needed Kasper Schmeichel to be on top form back in his homeland as he pulled off a superb last-minute save to deny Andreas Cornelius from close-range.
4 – Leicester City are the first team in #UCL history to keep a clean sheet in each of their first four games in the competition. Solid.
