Guzan handled his first bit of danger by gobbling up a barely-hit product of an eighth minute Leicester free kick. Christian Fuchs dragged a counter attack wide of the goal moments later.
The Riverside thought lightning quick Adama Traore had won a PK with a darting move past Robert Huth, but referee Bobby Madley wasn’t moved by Traore’s spill.
A chippy end to the half saw a pair of chances for Riyad Mahrez, though Boro held up on defense with Guzan making a 41st minute save.
