Leicester and Roma leave their Conference League semi-final wide openwhich will be decided in a Olympic super hot next thursday. It was a draw that undoubtedly left the romanisti happier, who knew how to defend themselves in an orderly manner and only suffered somewhat in the second half against the set of Rodgers, who had no aim.
The script of the game was very clear from the beginning. Mourinho’s men left the reins of the game to their rival, who started strong and created danger with one of his weapons, set pieces. At 15′, however, the Italians unexpectedly managed to get ahead. They did it with one of the great discoveries of the Special One, Nicola Zalewski. The 20-year-old winger, after a quick drive, put Pellegrini in front of the goal with a through ballwho placed the ball between Schmeichel’s legs.
The leicesterwho closed the game with 67% possession and 14 shots against the four of his rivals, grew a lot during the break, in which Roma lost Mkhitaryan due to muscular problems. The well-deserved draw came in minute 67, when the revulsive Barnes went deep, crossed looking for Lookman and found an own goal from defender Mancini.
