Riyad Mahrez was never going to look out of place in the Champions League.

The Algeria international has just scored an exquisite free-kick during the first half of Leicester City’s Champions League debut away at Club Brugge.

Mahrez, from the edge of the penalty area, smacked the set piece into the top left-hand corner of the net past Brugge goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

That goal doubled the Foxes’ lead following Marc Albrighton’s opener in the fifth minute of the match.

It’s been a remarkable start to their debut Champions League campaign by Claudio Ranieri’s men.
