Wilfred Ndidi ended his goal drought as he got on the score sheet in Leicester City’s 3-1 home win against Legia Warsaw, in matchday five of the Europa League Group C fixture on Thursday, Completesports.com reports.

Ndidi last scored for Leicester in January, in a 2-0 home victory over Chelsea.

The win saw Leicester move from bottom to top in Group C standing to eight points, one point ahead Spartak Moscow and Napoli, who are both on seven points.

The Foxes will now face Napoli in their final group game.

And in Scotland, Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey helped Rangers reach the round of 16, after defeating Sparta Prague 2-0 in Group A.

Bassey featured for 90 minutes while Aribo was replaced in the 81st minute. Leon Balogun was not in action due to injury.

It was new manager Giovanni Van Bronckhorst first game in charge since replacing Steven Gerrard.

An Alfredo Morelos double earned Rangers the important win and a place in the knockout stage.

The win ensured Rangers went out of sight of Brondby ahead of their final game against Group A winners Lyon. Their 2-1 aggregate score over Sparta means the Czech side cannot overturn a three-point deficit.
