Leicester City host Sporting Braga in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The Foxes have taken maximum points from their two games so far – as have their opponents, while the teams also have equal goals scored and conceded to leave them directly level.
This game, plus the return fixture after the international break, will likely determine the eventual order of progression, where head-to-head results could prove pivotal.
Leicester won against Leeds on Monday night domestically, while Braga beat Famalicao in the Primeira Liga.
