    Vardy misses penalty, Leicester City draw Europa League

     Jamie Vardy missed a second-half penalty as Leicester City could only draw 1-1 with Spartak Moscow on Thursday (November 4) to leave Europa League Group C wide open.


    Victor Moses put Spartak ahead early in the second half when he escaped the attentions of Leicester’s defence and planted a firm header low into the corner of the net.

    The Foxes equalised shortly afterwards when Daniel Amartey headed in from a corner, before Moses gave away a penalty when he hauled down Ademola Lookman. Substitute Vardy stepped up to take the spot-kick, but Spartak goalkeeper Alexander Selikhov guessed correctly and saved well. Leicester’s positive intent almost brought an early opener as Ayoze Perez headed wide from a good position, before Selikhov saved well from Kelechi Iheanacho. Spartak were content to sit deep, giving Boubakary Soumare the time to shoot from distance as he struck the underside of the bar with a spectacular effort.


    Despite enjoying 73.7 per cent of possession in the first half, that was as close as the Foxes went before the interval and Spartak took the lead six minutes into the second half – Mikhail Ignatov’s right-wing cross allowing the unmarked Moses to guide a header beyond Kasper Schmeichel.

    Leicester levelled just before the hour when Perez flicked on Ryan Bertrand’s in-swinging corner and Amartey outmuscled Roman Zobnin to head in. Shortly after replacing Patson Daka, Vardy was presented with a chance from the penalty spot with 14 minutes left after Moses felled Lookman, but Selikhov dived low to his left to save superbly. Leicester had a final chance through Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s saved header, with Iheanacho unable to pounce on the rebound.

    Leicester City draw with Spartak Moscow in Group C of the UEFA Europa League. The English team drew 1-1 in the decisive match at King Power. The match also saw Jamie Ward squandering a golden opportunity to win. Lester held the ball 77% of the time but had to settle for a draw. After a goalless first half, Nigeria’s Victor Moses header from Mikhail’s cross in the 51st minute gave Russia the first goal.

    After conceding the goal, Lester woke up more and played. Amarty then equalized in the 58th minute with a header from a corner by Ioze Perez. Lester had a chance to score in the 75th minute when Moses converted a penalty after Lukman had been sent off as a substitute. However, Ward’s penalty was saved by Moscow goalkeeper Selikov, who came on as a substitute. Lester then made several attempts to score the winning goal, including Ignacho’s attempt to knock the post back, but they were unable to score the winning goal alone. Leicester City are currently third in Group C.

    first half

    The game in the first half was Leicester who had possession of the ball and had more chances to score goals. But still unable to take the lead, finishing the first half, both teams are still 0-0.

    second half

    In the 51st minute, it was back to Spartak Moscow, leading 1-0 from the moment Mikhail Ignatov dribbled the ball to starboard. Before opening into the penalty area, Victor Moses swooped into the goal.

    58 minutes, Leicester equalized 1-1 from the stroke of a corner kick on the right side, then Ayoze Perez opened for Daniel Amarty to hit the net alone.

    In the 75th minute, the defenders got a penalty from Victor Moses’ lead, Ademola Lukman fell in the box, but Jamie Vardy fired to save Alexander Seligkov. Make it still 1-1

    After that, neither side could do more to make the game end as Leicester drew 1-1 with Spartak Moscow.

    As a result, Leicester have risen to five points from four games in third place, while Spartak, four points from four games, are at the bottom of the table.
