In the English Championship standings, the Leicester City footballers stood out in a second place with a 2-1 (2-0) away victory in the 25th round against Aston Villa.

In the middle of the first half, the visitors from Leicester gained a crucial advantage when they took a 2-0 lead with goals from Maddison in the 19th and Barnes in the 23rd minute.

First, Maddison hit with a precise shot from 20 meters, helped by Barnes, and then Barnes cleared the ball into the goal after Martinez, the home goalkeeper, only managed to deflect Vardy’s powerful shot.

At the beginning of the second half, the home team returned to the game when Traore defeated Schmeichel in the 48th minute from close range, but the outcome did not change until the end of the match.

The second Leicester now has 49 points, seven fewer than the leading Manchester City to visit Arsenal at 5.30 pm, and three more than the third Manchester United to host Newcastle United at 8 pm. With 36 points and two fewer games, Aston Villa is in the eighth position.
