James Madison scored his first home goal of the season as Leicester produced one of the comfortable football scores of the Europa League. Leicester started the day at the bottom of the group but got off to a quick start. Patson Daka scored in the 11th minute before Madison doubled their advantage 10 minutes later. Wilfried Ndidi handled the ball in the penalty area to gift the visitors a penalty. Kasper Schmeichel saved the penalty but could not prevent Filip Mladenovic from scoring from the rebound. Just minutes after conceding the penalty, he made amends when he headed in a James Madison corner.

Managers Reaction 

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “We’re at the top, in a great position and they (Napoli) will need to win and we need to get a result.” he added. “Going into the last game, if we had said that before we kicked off, we would have taken that. You see the quality in the group, like Spartak beating Napoli and all the teams having good results but we are in control where we finish. Our objective at the beginning was to qualify so that’s all in our hands.”

Legia caretaker manager Marek Golebiewski: “It was very difficult from the beginning, for the first goal we were still in the dressing room. We had a penalty and thanks to that we managed to make our loss a little bit smaller.” he added. “We made a mistake for 3-1 and it was too difficult to score another two goals. If you play for Legia this is where you’re heart should be. The players know where they are and who they are playing for.”
