Leicester city through to the Semi final of the Europa conference league after coming from behind to defeat PSV Eindhoven
Leicester city defeated PSV Eindhoven
2:1 on thursday night to book a spot in the Europa conference league with As Roma.
It was Leicester city that got the game first real chance as Kelechi Iheanacho playing as an interior playmaker threaded a lovely ball through to Harvey Barnes who dragged his shot wide off the post when he should have scored.
The score remained goaless,but it was the home side that brought the pressure on with fomer Bayern Munich and Dortmund player Mario Gotze drawing a smart save from Kasper Schmeichel.
PSV Captain Coady Gakpo then saw his tame shot fly pass Kasper Schmeichel goal as he failed to trouble the leciester city back line.
The early pressure from the home side would pay off as Youri Tielemans was disposesed off the ball, and a quick one two saw Eran Zahavi shot creep under Kasper Schmeichel,one nill to the home side.
The home side dominated possession in the first half as they looked to break down a resolute leciester city defence.
Patason Daka should have pulled a goal back for Foxes, another delicate pass from Kelechi Iheanacho who was at the heart of everything good for Leicester, found Daka who raced clear of the PSV defender one v one vs the goalkeeper and he missed the goal by a few meter
Brenda Roger made some changes that seemed to spur leciester city,they got their equalizer through James Madison,a lovely run and dribble by Ayoze Perez resulted in a cut-back which Madison roofed into the back of the net.
Ademola Lookman who was barely on the pitch got into the thick of things as his cut back found Patson Daka whose shot was blocked by the PSV goalkeeper but it fell kindly for returning defender Ricardo Periera who kept his composure to smash it home that gave Leicester the lead 2:1 on the night.
After a late surge by the Netherland side the Foxes held firm to see out the match and book their place in the semi final of the inaugural Europa conference league competition.
