Shinji Okazaki nets the opener for Leicester But Claudio Ranieris men hung on for the victory to seal their spot in the knockout stages and top the group ahead of Porto and Copenhagen, who played out a 0-0 draw in Group Gs other fixture. It was the perfect start for Leicester as they took an early lead after a sublime touch from Jamie Vardy to take the ball round his defender and set off Christian Fuchs on the left flank. His cross found Okazaki, who glided the ball past Brugge goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle. Sky Sports Black Friday sale Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price!

Christian Fuchs vies for the ball Vardy had not scored in 13 appearances for his club and thought the drought was over on the hour mark when he flicked a Fuchs cross into the back of the net - but the linesmans flag was correctly raised for offside. Substitute Jeff Schlupp wasted a fine chance ten minutes later when he shot straight into the hands of Butelle despite having options on either side, before Foxes captain Morgan was called into defensive action to stop a fizzing Anthony Limbombe cross from finding the head of Jelle Vossen.
