It was Odey’s first goal for Randers since October 2021 and his 11th in all competitions this season.

Ndidi set up Harvey Barnes for the opener on two minutes with a pass on halfway with the English forward calmly slotting home.

And in the 74th minute Leicester went 3-0 as Iheanacho found James Maddison who hit a 23-yard effort into the back of the net.

And in the Europa League, Zaidu Sanusi helped FC Porto progress into the round of 16 after 2-2 draw at Lazio.

The result means Porto edge Lazio 4-3 on aggregate after securing a 2-1 first leg home win.
