Hard blow for Leicester – Europa League



Leicester lost to Napoli and was eliminated from the Europa League. Brendan Rodgers’ team said goodbye to the tournament with a painful 3-2 loss in Italy. The home team quickly took the lead thanks to goals from Adam Ounas and Eljif Elmas, but the Foxies reacted and tied with goals from Jonny Evans and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall. The result worked, the waters were calm, but catastrophe came. Elmas found the ball again within the area and sentenced the final result in favor of Napoli.

When the game ended, simultaneously and in Poland, Legia Warszawa fell 1-0 to Spartak Moscow, but the locals had a penalty to tie and make Leicester qualify despite the defeat. Tomáš Pekhart stepped in front of the ball and kicked across to his left, but Spartak goalkeeper Aleksandr Selikhov became a hero and deflected the penalty for the Russians to advance to the round.

Meanwhile, in Italy the news was known and the image that the transmission took was the reflection. James Maddison took his face. The sadness was absolute. Leicester missed the chance to advance to the next round and will have to play the UEFA Conference League.

West Ham couldn’t, but was already classified

The Hammers closed their participation in Group H with a defeat in London against Dinamo Zagreb, but there will be no worry: they finished first and will go straight to the Round of 16 of the Europa League. The jewel of the match was provided by Mislav Oršić with the tremendous goal that he scored as soon as the match started. From the left side and out of the box, he hit her in a way that he will never forget. He sure his goal ends up in the selection of the best of the tournament.

David Moyes had confirmed in a press conference that he would use a mix between experienced and young and he kept his word: Alphonse Areola was in the arc; Harrison Ashby, Jamal Baptiste, Ajibola-Joshua Alese and Emmanuel Longelo were all youthful defensive linemen; Alex Král added minutes in the middle of the court and Sonny Perkins, a great promise of the cadet team, took charge of the attack. In addition, he had the luxury of debuting Freddie Potts and Keenan Appiah-Forson.
