The King Power Stadium, Leicester City’s home ground, saw a heated rivalry between Leicester City and Legia Warsaw for their UEFA Europa League match.
The first half of the encounter was quite dramatic for both teams. Patson Daka scored the opening goal of the match for Leicester City on the penalty spot and led 1-0. It was duplicated ten minutes later by none other than James Maddison.
However, after an excellent save, Filip Mladenović pulled back a goal for Legia Warsaw. The goals kept pouring in as Wilfried Ndidi scored the third goal of the game for Leicester City and the two teams entered the second half with a score of 3-1.
As the match progressed, it ended with a 3-1 win in favor of the home team. With that, let’s see how the players performed:-
Kasper Schmeichel (GK) (7.4 / 10): Truly a brilliant night for Kasper Schmeichel with gloves. He made some brilliant saves and topped them all with a stunning save. However, he conceded a goal to ruin his clean sheet match.
Timothy Castagne (6.7 / 10): Castagne made some great saves and tackles in defence while using his clever skills to win duels.
Daniel Amartey (7/10): Amartey had an approximate pass accuracy of 93% during the game and made some great passes to keep the ball moving. He made some good tackles and saves to keep their half clear.
Çağlar Söyüncü (7/10): Söyüncü coordinated well with other defenders to ensure the ball went away from Leicester goal. He made some good attempts to get through the box and stood tall to make sure no strikers came through.
Luke Thomas (7.2 / 10): One of the fastest of the goals for Leicester. He blocked the ball at most four times and won four tackles. He’s super fast with his feet and his polite skill, he won a lot of duels on the ground.
Boubakary Soumaré (6.5/10): Only played 62 minutes for Boubakary Soumaré. He did a good job jn his time. He made some good passes, however, he was unable to win any kind of duel he challenged.
Wilfred Ndidi (6.9/10): Ndidi had a great game for Leicester City. He scored their third goal of the game after receiving a superb assist from James Maddison. In addition, he made a brief mistake of taking a penalty that ruined a clean sheet.
James Maddison (8.2 / 10): Maddison did a lot in 63 minutes. He doubled Leicester City’s lead in the 21st minute and then assisted the third goal of the game. An excellent performance of the front.
Harvey Barnes (7.2/10): Barnes excelled in the outer ring. He gave great support to Patson Daka, who held the ball and shot into the net. Harvey tried several times to score but unfortunately was unable to convert successfully.
Patson Daka (7.4 / 10): Patson Daka played very well in 85 minutes playing for Leicester City. With the excellent assist of Harvey Barnes, Daka opened the scoring in the 11th minute and took the lead.
Ademola Lookman (7/10): Lookman may not shine with his feet in front of goal but he certainly had a valuable assist to help James Maddison double the lead in the 21st minute.
Ayoze Perez (None)
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (7/10): In his short playing time, he passed a lot of long balls accurately and was also shy in front of goal. Unfortunately, he went off target when he tried.
Marc Albrighton (None)
Kelechi Iheanacho (N / A)
Cezary Miszta (GK) (6.2 / 10): Not Cezary’s best match when conceding 3 goals, which will definitely affect his confidence for the upcoming matches.
Mattias Johansson (6.1/10): Mattias only had 45 minutes of the game. He did a good job defending but he barely touched the ball. Before he could make an impact, he was substituted. However, he seemed to have lost his form in the first half.
Mateusz Wieteska (6.9/10): Mateusz gave his all while defending. He made three crucial clearances and blocked three incoming shots while gathering possession with three precious interceptions. However, he could not stop the goals from coming.
Artur Jędrzejczyk (6.2/10): The captain had a rough night. He did a good job defending but he lost the ball too many times.
Yuri Ribeiro (6.9 / 10): Yuri made a mistake when trying to score but missed the target. However, it wasn’t the best match for him as he lost possession eighteen times.
André Martins (6.3/10): Martins did a great job of contributing in any way possible to his team. He made some good long balls and a few wins in duels but failed to make a positive impact on the game.
Bartosz Slisz (6.9 / 10): Bartosz had a good run to reach the goal and hit Kasper in the face, but was accurately keeper and the opportunity was denied. He won quite a few duels.
Filip Mladenović (7.2 / 10): Before being conceded in the 71st minute, Filip had a brilliant match. He was the only fighter to bring home the goal for Legia Warsaw after the Leicester City goalkeeper saved a brilliant penalty. He did well in the ground matches and had a pretty decent game overall.
Ernest Muçi (6.3 / 10): An underperforming game for Ernest as he was unable to influence what was going on in front, nor created any chances for goal.
Mahir Emreli (October 6): The worst possible match for Mahir Emreli as he couldn’t do anything he could for Legia Warsaw. He had many scoring attempts but he failed to convert any and he also missed a penalty to go above them all.
Luquinhas (6.9 / 10): Luquinhas had an excellent effort but while trying to finish, he missed the target. Though he is the least hesitant to take on players in ground matches and he has won quite a few of them.
Mateusz Holownia (6.5/10): He didn’t have a great impact on the game for Legia Warsaw but certainly did a good job of passing the ball around.
Jurgen Celhaka (N / A)
Tomas Pekhart (None)
Kacper Skibicki (None)
Szymon Wlodarczyk (None)
