Sierra Leone striker Alhaji Kamara’s Danish side Randers FC will travel to face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in their first leg knockout of the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday evening (8 pm GMT kick-off).

Randers finished runners-up in Group D of the UEFA Europa Conference League and were seeded in the draw whilst the Foxes finished third in their Europa League pool to set up a two-legged tie.

The first leg is scheduled for 17 February at King Power Stadium, while 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.

While this is Randers’ first match against English opponents in the UEFA competition, Leicester have been paired once before with a Danish club, beating FC Copenhagen 1-0 at home before drawing 0-0 away to them in the group stage of the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League. Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel kept clean sheets for Leicester in both legs against the champions of his homeland.

Sierra Leone International Alhaji Kamara has scored twice in the group stages for Randers in the last five matches.

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