Leicester 3-1 Legia Warsaw: Player ratings

    Leicester took a large step towards qualifying for the knockout stages of the Europa League by soundly beating Legia Warsaw at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night.

    Patson Daka became the Foxes’ all time leading goalscorer in Europe with five strikes as he swivelled and fired into the bottom corner, before James Maddison doubled their lead, curling a lovely effort beyond visiting goalkeeper Cezary Miszta.

    Their advantage was cut in half, however, when Wilfred Ndidi was penalised for handball. Mahir Emreli’s weak penalty was kept out by Kasper Schmeichel but Filip Mladenovic reacted quickest to tuck in the rebound.

    The see-saw rhythm of the first half continued as Leicester made it 3-1, with Ndidi making amends to head in from Maddison’s corner.

    The second period was a much more sedate affair, with Brendan Rodgers’ side happy to see out the game and ensure they head to the final matchday in a good position.
