I don't think of Tigers first. Never been to Welford Road (or any other Rugby ground) in my life and don't intend to. 

 

However, my point is how we're portrayed in Europe. Leicester (Tigers) have historically a strong profile on the continent. Our profile outside of the UK has only increased in the past few years and our identity needs to be distinct from the rugby boys. 

 

We are Leicester City, Riyad got it (eventually). 

Well, in that case, I think we can see it as a good sign that we're being referred to as just 'Leicester.' It means we may be becoming as, or more, well-known as the Tigers are in Europe.

 

I really don't think there's many situations when the football and rugby club would be confused. I just don't think it's a concern. Happy for us to be referred to casually as just 'Leicester' for convenience's sake. Not a problem.

Didn't Wolves have Braga in their EL group? How good are Braga @The Bear

They were decent. Beat us 0-1 at Molineux (undeserved - classic away performance) and drew 3-3 at their place. Horta (LW) and Paulinho (ST) are very good players for them.

Can we draw anyone (apart from team in our group) in Round of 32? As in, could we play an English club in Round of 32, or is it only from Round of 16 that can happen?

There's still country protection in the last 32. After that you can get anyone though.

Have they weakened since as they haven't had a good start to the league?

Lesson learnt - Never trust the internet :whistle:

Zaporozhye it will be. UEFA checked them in August and confirmed current home-ground (they were relocated from Lugansk due to the war in the East).

Most likely there will be a direct flight to Zaporozhye for Leicester, or (unlikely)  to nearby Dnipro and a bus-trip after that.

Unfortunately, away fans won’t be allowed by UEFA regulations.
