Leicester Goal-less Draw In Prague

AdminFebruary 19, 2021

PAGUE: Leicester goalless draw in Slavia Prague in the first leg of the last 32 of the Europa League today.

Leicester, who are third in the Premier League, dominated the first half but Czech Republic champions Slavia looked more dangerous after the break.

“It went really well for us,” Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said after the match.

“We got a good result to be taken to the second match on February 25th.”

The hosts decorated the empty seats with the words “Slavia Prague Fox Hunting”, but the Foxes squad seemed to play better at the start.

Harvey Barnes baited for Marc Albrighton in the first minute but his swipe missed.

Barnes himself overcame the Slavic defense on the left wing in the 14th minute but his attempt was denied by goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar.

Leicester made a change from a 3-1 win over Liverpool last week when 19-year-old Luke Thomas replaced Ricardo Pereira.
