Conference League: Odey To Face Ndidi, Iheanacho In Play-Offs

Stephen Odey is set to face compatriots Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi and Ademola Lookman in the Europa Conference League play-offs next year.
Leicester City, who crashed out of the Europa League, are billed to face Danish side FC Randers for a place in the round of 16 of the Conference League, with the English side billed to host the first leg on February 17 at the King Poer Stadium while the return leg is billed for February 24.

The Danish side will be banking on the proficiency of the Nigerian striker Odey who scored two goals in four appearances in the group stage.
The Foxes, however, will be hoping to make it to the round of 16 after their shock exit from the Europa League despite being top of the group after four games.
Iheanacho will be keen to take his Europa League form to the Conference League. Despite not grabbing a goal in the group stage, the Nigeria international ended his campaign with three assists in four appearances.
In other Conference League play-offs fixtures, Celtic have been pitted against Norwegians Bodo/Glimt in Monday’s draw.
Marseille face Qarabag of Azerbaijan and PSV Eindhoven will play Maccabi Tel-Aviv in other ties, which feature the group runners-up of the new competition against the eight third-placed teams dropping down from the Europa League.
