Leicester reach first-ever European semi-finals

Leicester reach first European semi-finals

Leicester City have added another first to their history after the Foxes produced a superb comeback to beat PSV Eindhoven in the Europa Conference League and reach the club’s first European semi-final.

Ricardo Pereira scored a dramatic late winner to set up a last-four meeting with Jose Mourinho’s Roma, who knocked out Bodo/Glimt.

Following a goalless first leg at King Power Stadium, Eran Zahavi pounced on a mistake by Youri Tielemans to open the scoring before Maddison dragged Leicester level with 13 minutes remaining.

The Foxes midfielder slotted into the top corner from Ayoze Perez’s clever cutback and Pereira then fired the winner in the 88th minute to seal a memorable win at the Philips Stadion.

“We are creating history,” said James Maddison. “It’s a brilliant feeling and a brilliant night. We showed that resilience. A great feeling.

“The togetherness of the boys is unbelievable. [Wesley] Fofana is fasting and hasn’t eaten or drank all day and he puts in a performance like that. It epitomises what we are made of. Two brilliant goals to win the game.

“Another big night ahead – these are the nights you want to be involved in. It is one we look forward to. That is what we do it for.”
