Leicester was risking their lives against Spartak and was able to leave Moscow with three vital points that allow them to leave the last place in Group C. The victory of the ‘Foxes’ was one of the most suffered, they came back 2-0 to the Russian team hand in hand with a stellar Patson Daka.
The Zambian striker scored all four of Leicester’s goals and allowed Brendan Rodgers to score their first win in this Europa League.
When all seemed lost for the ‘foxes’, the figure of Daka burst in, opening a door to hope by establishing 2-1 at 45′ after taking advantage of a pass from the Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho.
A formula that worked again three minutes after the restart when Daka signed the momentary 2-2 after another new assist from Iheanacho.
The second goal did not appease the voracity of the Zambian striker, who arrived this summer at the English team from Austrian Salzburg, who turned the score (2-3) in the 54th minute after finishing a precise deep pass from Belgian Youri Tielemans.
The sensational performance of Patson Daka, who turned 23 on October 9, culminated with his fourth goal when he established 2-4 for Leicester with eleven minutes to go.
A result that made the last goal of Alexander Sobolev inconsequential, who had already opened the account for Spartak and established the final 3-4 in the 86th minute.
With this victory, Leicester, who had only added one point in the first two days, re-engaged in the fight for the leadership of group C, which is occupied by Legia de Warsaw with 6 points, two more than the English team, and that He will face Napoli tonight (21:00) at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium.
