Daka Scores Four As Leicester Fight Back In A Win To Boost Europa League Hopes

Posted by

Leicester enhanced their Europa League qualification ambitions by superbly coming back from two goals behind to overcome Spartak Moscow, thanks to four goals from Patson Daka.

The Zambian international has only had a few chances to impress in the Foxes first squad this season, but he has shown the intelligent movement and poise in front of goal that drew them to pay £22 million for him from Red Bull Salzburg last summer.

City has struggled in Europe this season and looked to be on the verge of another humiliating defeat when Spartak Moscow seized a 2-0 lead in the cold Russian city.

After a deflection from Alexander Sobolev, former Chelsea winger Victor Moses set up Jordan Larsson, the son of ex-Swedish international forward Henrik, for the second goal.

Leicester, on the other hand, were quick to counter, with Daka slotting in after getting on the end of Kelechi Iheanacho’s chipped through-ball.

Soon after the break, the Zambian international, who scored a late goal in Saturday’s 4-2 win over Manchester United, leveled the score with another exquisite finish set up by Iheanacho.
