Leicester and PSV play out goalless first leg

Harvey Barnes struck the crossbar in the first half for Leicester

Leicester’s Europa Conference League quarter-final is finely poised after a goalless first leg against PSV Eindhoven at the King Power Stadium.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have endured an inconsistent season but keep alive their hopes of lifting silverware come the end of the campaign.

The hosts came closest to breaking the deadlock on the stroke of half-time but lively winger Harvey Barnes rattled the crossbar following a one-two with Kelechi Iheanacho.

PSV should have taken the lead in just the second minute when Mario Gotze evaded the offside trap but Kasper Schmeichel spread himself wide to deny the German World Cup winner.

The two sides meet at the Philips Stadium in the second leg next Thursday for the right to meet Roma or Bodo/Glimt in the last four.

That tie saw Norwegians Bodo/Glimt score in the 89th minute to take a 2-1 advantage into the second leg.

More to follow.
