Manchester City ran at Etihad Stadium from minute 1 without stopping. Leicester, the sensational champion of 2016, almost never came out of his own half. The "Foxes" defended themselves with man and mouse – with the sole purpose of pulling the tie to Manchester.
For 70 minutes, the plan of the guests went up. Especially thanks to goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who showed some fantastic parades.
Kompanys hammer in luck
But then Vincent Kompany stepped in. The Belgian defender withdrew from 30 meters and found himself splendidly on the crossbar. Flatter stretched in vain. The shot was unsustainable.
The advantage of 1-0 brought the city over time. Substitute Kelechi Iheanacho missed Leicester's only opportunity in the 87th minute.
The last round has to decide
