BUCHAREST, Romania - Oct. 19, 2016 - PRLog -- Riyad Mahrez's goal secured a 1-0 win over FC Copenhagen on Tuesday, to leave the Foxes one triumph from fitting the bill for the Champions League last 16.

However, the English champions, unbeaten in Europe with three wins out of three, are 13th in the Premier League, after four defeats, but are happy to be just the fifth Champions League debutants, after AC Milan, PSG, Juventus and Malaga, to win their opening three fixtures. Ranieri said it is a mental issue, his team have officially lost more matches in the Premier League this season than they did in their title battle, conceding 14 goals already.

Ranieri stated: "I am very proud of the side from one side but from another, when I think of the Premier League, I am very, very angry. In my career this has happened. When you are in the big competition for the first time you grow and then you lose something when you go back into your own competition. When you play in the Champions League you are switched on, very, very smart and focused on every situation. You use up a lot of mental energy in the Champions League. We want to change this though because the Premier League is our priority. It is good to go into the Europa League but we are in the Champions League and we go step by step. We have to stay calm now and change our mentality in the Premier League because we have Crystal Palace coming up, a tough, tough match."

Be that as it may, in Europe, the Foxes have turned out to be just the third group to start a Champions League battle with three straight clean sheets, and they can secure a place in the last 16 with a win in Denmark on 2 November, having as of now ensured no less than an Europa League spot. This is a huge performance for Claudio Ranieri and his players. In any case, the Foxes may simply favor their odds of taking the dream even further, if they will win the group, which will allow them to confront a less powerful opponent in the last-16 draw. Avoiding names such as Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich, is something that they should desire.

The King Power Stadium is a smaller and environmental field, whirling with commotion, that is flawlessly intended for European evenings and making the opponent sides uncomfortable. If Leicester can keep up this European shape, with Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and Islam Slimani in form, they will have a real chance of writing another history page.
