You can also find a list of LXX quotations in the NT in the back of the
UBS text. I checked out the first one, Mt 1.23a quoting from Isa 7.14,
and found 15 words quoted verbatim from the LXX with only one change.
The verb KALEW is in the 3rd person singular in the LXX, but in the 3rd
person plural in Matthew.
