Braga 3 – 3 Leicester

Jamie Vardy’s 95th-minute strike earned Leicester a dramatic 3-3 draw at Braga which was enough to secure their place in the Europa League round of 32.

It appeared as though the Foxes would be made to wait in order to book their spot in the knockout stages of the competition when Fransergio fired the Portuguese side in front in the final minute of normal time.

But Vardy met Marc Albrighton’s low cross to equalise for Leicester for the third time on the night. Harvey Barnes (9) had earlier cancelled out Al Musrati’s fourth-minute opener before Paulinho restored Braga’s lead.

But Luke Thomas’ first senior goal appeared to have earned Brendan Rodgers’ team a point before the last-minute drama unfolded at the Estadio AXA.

The result means Leicester top Group G on 10 points, and cannot finish outside of the top two places following Zorya Luhansk’s 3-0 victory at AEK Athens.
