Leicester City proved too strong in their Europa Conference League knockout round play-off first leg against Danish side Randers after a 4-1 victory.

The result means they’re a step away to make the round of 16. Nigeria’s Wilfried Ndidi gave the Foxes the lead with a side-footed finish from Ademola Lookman’s pass.

The Danish side levelled the scoreline through Vito Hammershoej-Mistrati against the run of play, but Harvey Barnes restored the lead with a turn and clever finish.

Patson Daka added a third and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall slotted home after good work by Kelechi Iheanacho.

Sierra Leone International Alhaji Kamara started at the Leicester City stadium but was subbed off in the 65th minute when Randers was 3-1 down. 

The Foxes set themselves up nicely for a comfortable second-leg in Denmark now after Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall made it 4-1 in the 74th minute. 

The second leg will take place on 24 February at Randers Stadium. The winner over two legs will decide who progresses into the last-16 of the inaugural Conference League tournament.

All winners of the ties earn a place in the round of 16 draws on 25 February, where they will be unseeded. The seeded teams are AZ Alkmaar, Basel, Copenhagen, Feyenoord, Gent, LASK, Rennes and Roma.
