Barnes equalizer scores points for Leicester at Leeds

LEEDS, England (NWN) – Harvey Barnes leveled in the first half as Leicester held on to a point in a 1-1 draw at Resurgent Leeds in the Premier League on Sunday.

Barnes produced a stunning, curling finish as Leicester reacted quickly when Leeds took a deserved lead at land Road via Rafinha’s 26th-minute free kick.

Leeds created ample opportunities to chase back-to-back league victories for the first time this season, while Leicester defender Ricardo Pereira stabbed the ball against his own post in the first half.

Rafinha steered Leeds into a deserved lead when his free kick jumped inside Kasper Schmeichel’s far post, but the hosts’ advantage did not last long.

Straight off the restart, Barnes cut inside from the left and, after shifting the ball to his right foot, swung the ball past Ilan Messlier and into the top corner.

After failing to convert several chances, Leeds got a respite in the 67th when Ademola Lukman’s away effort was dismissed for offside by VAR.

Wilfred Nadidi spoiled his shot as Leicester still threatened to snatch all three points in the closing stages when Leeds’ hopes of victory ended when Rafinha’s thumping drive ended.

Midtable Leicester have 15 points, four more than Leeds.
