Le­ices­ter 2, Mid­dle­brough 2

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

Le­ices­ter is so con­fi­dent and lively in the Cham­pi­ons League, where it has pro­gressed to the round of 16, but fail­ing to look like the Premier League cham­pion when back on do­mes­tic duty.

It took Is­lam Sli­mani’s stop­page-time penalty to avoid a third suc­ces­sive league loss but it still left Le­ices­ter only two points above the rel­e­ga­tion zone with one win in eight.

Riyad Mahrez also scored from the penalty spot ei­ther side of Al­varo Ne­gredo’s dou­ble for Mid­dles­brough that ended a goal drought stretch­ing back to the first week­end of the sea­son.
