Leicester City suffered a small damper in the battle for the Champions League in the Premier League. The ex-champions only got 1: 1 (0: 0) at the start of the 34th matchday at Southampton FC despite a long outnumber. The lead of third in the table in fifth place could thus shrink to five points.
Jonny Evans (68th) equalized for the guests who played in the majority early on after the red card against former Bundesliga professional Jannik Vestergaard (10th, gross foul play). James Ward-Prowse had given Southampton the lead with a penalty (61.). The hosts trained by Ralph Hasenhüttl have a reassuring advantage over the relegation zone.
