Ademola Lookman scores as Leicester City holds AS Roma to draw

by: Evolve


On Thursday night, Ademola Lookman scored the equalizer in Leicester City’s UEFA Europa League semi-final first leg clash against AS Roma.

At the King Power Stadium, Leicester City fought back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho’s side traveled to England in the hopes of avenging their Serie A loss to Inter Milan, but were unable to accomplish so.

In the 15th minute, Lorenzo Pellegrini, who was set up by Nicola Zalewski, gave the Italians the lead.

Gianluca Mancini turned an Ademola Lookman shot into his own net seven minutes after the hour mark, bringing Brendan Rodgers’ side level.

Kelechi Iheanacho also played in the game, replacing Jamie Vardy in the 62nd minute but failed to make an impact.

Leicester City will be seeking redemption for their 1-1 draw as they go to AS Roma in Italy.
