Zorya Luhansk 1 Leicester 0: Soyuncu injured early on return as Foxes concede late in dull Europa League display – Bukipress

- Advertisment -

LEICESTER CITY endured a night to forget as Caglar Soyuncu lasted just 17 minutes on his return from injury.

And then Zorya Luhansk substitute Allahyar Sayyadmanesh rubbed salt into the Foxes’ wounds with a late winner in Ukraine.

Leicester knew victory would confirm their spot at the top of Europa League Group G.

And Brendan Rodgers was able to bring back Soyuncu, Wilfred Ndidi and – for the first time since March – Ricardo Pereira into the fold following long-term injuries.

But the Turkish international lasted just 17 minutes before hobbling off clutching the groin area that forced him to miss eight weeks.

Sayyadmanesh then arrived unmarked at the back post to fire home the ball after it was slid across the face of goal expertly.

Cengiz Under, City’s most creative player on the night before James Maddison’s introduction, was denied a last-gasp equaliser when Zorya goalkeeper Nikola Vasilj made a spectacular stop.
