The quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa Conference League conclude this week and will see PSV Eindhoven host Leicester City at the Philips Stadion on Thursday evening.

PSV Eindhoven held on for a goalless draw in the first leg last week. They had started the brighter side, coming closest to taking the lead in the opening two minutes of the game when a lofted pass found Mario Gotze in the box but the German could not convert.

The Dutch outfit last made it past this stage of a European tournament back in the 2004-05 season when they made it to the semifinals of the Champions League.

Leicester City were quite clearly the better side in the first leg of the clash. Pulling themselves together after a shaky start, the Foxes were the more adventurous side offensively but could not find the goal to hold the advantage ahead of the second leg.

Leicester City will be looking to get the job done in enemy territory as they aim to lift the inaugural Europa Conference League title at the end of the season.
