Leicester City and Slavia Prague face off at the King Power Stadium in a Europa League round of 32 second-leg clash with two Nigeria internationals in line to taste action.


Slavia Prague number 9, Peter Olayinka is confirmed to have traveled with the squad to the East Midlands on Tuesday afternoon, Wilfred Ndidi's injury problem is now a thing of the past, but his teammate Kelechi Iheanacho is suspended for this one, having picked up his third caution in the first leg.


The clean sheet Slavia Prague kept at home last Thursday is giving Olayinka hope that they stand a good chance of progressing to the last 16.


Speaking to TVSlavia, Olayinka said : "We're looking really forward to it, not just me, I think everyone. I know it's going to be like a bit hard for us but I believe we are ready and we are going to go through.


"They will not be surprised because we've played a lot of games like this in the past so I think they wouldn't be surprised because they know we are really physically fit and everyone is ready so I don't think they would be surprised.


"Now they would know what to do in the next game in England because they know we are really, really strong."


Olayinka is looking forward to playing at the King Power Stadium which has an excellent pitch, far better than the playing surfaces in the Czech Republic. 

For them this is their home ground, but it doesn't matter, we want to play, we want to qualify to the next round so I don't think that's an excuse, we want to go there and qualify.


"As you know this is a very good pitch, it's different from the last match in the league. This is a top pitch so I'm really looking forward to this," the Super Eagles striker concluded. 


This season, Olayinka has directly participated in 13 goals (10 goals, 3 assists) in 26 matches across all competitions for Slavia Prague.

Progressing in playing good football at club level will get him a call up back to the super eagles
