Ståle Solbakken, København coach
When it's our home game we maybe have to risk something more during the game than we did in the periods when we controlled things in their stadium. Obviously our way of dealing with their counterattacking ability has to improve. William Kvist and the two centre-backs are the key figures for us.
We have to make sure we don't give [Riyad] Mahrez space and those are the things that worry me. If we give away a lot of free-kicks and set pieces then obviously they are a threat with their big guys as well.
Claudio Ranieri, Leicester manager
We know this København team is very good. They have lost just one game this season. It will be a battle tomorrow.
It is important to have everything in our hands. We can write a new chapter in the Leicester story. It might not be tomorrow. I think Slimani is not ready, I do not want to risk him. [Ahmed] Musa is ready.
