    Leicester was nearly ahead in the 5th minute, when Wilfred Ndidi’s pass was flicked just wide of an own goal by goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

    James Maddison hit a low bouncing ball through traffic in the 16th minute, and Etheridge conceded a corner on a shot headed just wide.

    A Demarai Gray cross from the left was nearly turned into an own goal by Sean Morrison‘s blocking attempt.

    Leicester was sloppy, and Cardiff loves a counter attack. That led to a few decent chances, particularly for Josh Murphy.

    Morrison gave away a penalty to Maddison in the 74th minute, but Etheridge denied the young Englishman’s effort before Sol Bamba slid to clear the rebound from Maddison’s plate.
