Leicester continue with their perfect start in UEFA champions league

Magic man Mahrez carrying Leicester's Champions League dream on
Algerian combined with his club and international team-mate to secure victory over Copenhagen and maintain his side's 100 per cent record in the group

Two goals on matchday one against Club Brugge and another one here against Copenhagen, Mahrez is the decisive presence Leicester expect him to be.
While it still might not be happening for Jamie Vardy, Mahrez is dovetailing well with his international team-mate Islam Slimani. The £29m man was signed to make an impact in opposition boxes at this level and so it is proving.
He was the hero against Porto last time out and cushioned a perfect header into his friend’s path five minutes before half-time. Mahrez has been lacking that elusive calm in league football that brought him collective and individual success last season but he was on hand to deliver when Ranieri needed him most at the King Power Stadium.
He slipped his marker Mathias Jorgensen with the instinct of a striker before aiming a deft touch past Robin Olsen. It was a bright moment in a game of low quality.
