A week later, the Foxes (who won the home leg 4-1 with goals from Wilfred Ndidi, Harvey Barnes, Patson Daka and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall), played the return leg at Randers Stadium.

The pennants exchanged at kick-off have been added to the Club’s store of pennants, which now numbers well over 100, collected over the decades. The gift to the Club received from the Danish side was a glass vase, engraved with details of the competing clubs, together with the date of the tie and its venue.
