Today, however, Ralph Hazenputle`s players left with bowed heads from King Power Stadium, after James Madison in the 39th and Harvey Barnes in the 95th minute brought success to the hosts. The first half Southampton looked the more dangerous of the two teams and missed two good opportunities. In the 24th minute Che Adams stormed into the penalty area and shot close, but Kasper Schmeichel saved. In the 41st minute, Ryan Bertrand joined in the lead and tested Schmeichel`s reflex, which was difficult, but managed to keep his door. At the same time, Leicester managed to open the score in the 39th minute. Then Yuri Tillemans sent a pass for James Madison in the penalty area and he managed to send the ball from a small angle under the crossbar, scoring a very beautiful goal.

In the 73rd minute, a long shot by Stuart Armstrong deflected from the crossbar.

In the final minutes, the Saints launched an attack, but instead of scoring an equalizer, they got one in their own goal. The hosts counterattacked, Harvey Barnes came face to face with the goalkeeper and calmly formed the final forecast by faq 2:0.
So Leicester took the three points and climbed to 2nd place in the standings with an asset of 35 points. Southampton remains in 8th place with 29 points.
