Lookman Rescue Leicester in Europa Conference League

Ademola Lookman drew Leicester level to end it 1-1 against Roma in the first leg of Europa Conference League Thursday night.

Roma struck early when Nicola Zalewski played in captain Lorenzo Pellegrini for a smooth low finish underneath Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel in the 15th minute.

Leicester maintained their composure and deservedly equalised after 67 minutes when Ademola Lookman bundled in a cross from Harvey Barnes, via defender Gianluca Mancini.

In the other semi-final first leg encounter Feyenoord defeated Marseille 3-2 as both matches are still evenly poised for the return leg matches next week.

In the Europa League, West Ham United suffered a 1-2 defeat at home against Eintracht Frankfurt while Rangers lost 1-0 to RB Leipzig in the other match.

Rangers must come from behind if they are to reach their first European final in 14 years after a resolute showing was undone by a late RB Leipzig wonder strike in their Europa League semi-final first leg.

The Bundesliga hosts were limited in their opportunities but take a slender lead to Glasgow thanks to a stunning Angelino volley five minutes from time.

Ryan Kent flashed a rare chance wide for Rangers, but Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side will have to hope the tie can be salvaged at Ibrox.

For large spells, their performance in Germany was composed, with a vocal home crowd growing all the more frustrated as time ebbed away before a goal that illuminated an otherwise tense tie.

But it will be Rangers hoping to call upon a raucous Ibrox next Thursday as a night of drama is teed up in Govan.

In the English Premier League encounter Chelsea and Manchester United drew 1-1.
