The dream has continued for Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City who registered their third straight victory in the Champions League, defeating FC Copenhagen 1-0 at King Power Stadium on Thursday morning (NZT).

Midfielder Riyad Mahraz scored a stunning side-foot volley in the 40th minute to continue the Foxes' unbeaten streak as both teams looked to attack on the counter.

It could have been a higher scoring match had it not been for a number of dubious offside calls and the actions of both goalkeepers, with home keeper Kasper Schmeichel registering an outrageous reflex save in the second half.

The form very much contradicts what they've shown domestically after rolling over against Chelsea in the English Premier League on Sunday morning (NZT). However a quarter-final appearance in Europe would likely be perceived by many as mission accomplished.
