Islam Slimani extended his remarkable scoring record against Porto as Leicester City made it two wins from two in their debut Champions League campaign with a 1-0 victory.
The Algeria international moved to Leicester from Sporting CP last month and his decisive first-half header at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday took his tally to six goals in four games against Porto in 2016.
Slimani netted braces in the two Primeira Liga meetings last season, and scored again in a 2-1 win at the start of the campaign before completing his club-record switch to the Premier League champions.
This goal – his third in two home matches after a brace of headers against Burnley 10 days ago – sees the Foxes sitting top of Group G with maximum points ahead of the visit of second-placed Copenhagen in three weeks.
Once again, it was an impressive response in Europe from Claudio Ranieri’s men, who put Saturday’s 4-1 reverse at Manchester United firmly behind them having won 3-0 at Club Brugge on matchday one immediately after a 4-1 humbling at Liverpool.
