G'Day and welcome to the Otkrytie Arena for our live coverage of this UEFA Europa League Group C clash between Spartak Moscow and Leicester City.
1'
Kick-Off! We are underway here in Russia.
2'
It's an early corner for The Foxes after some fast work down the left from Daka. It is floated in but Maksimenko is fouled for a Spartak free-kick.
5'
It is a chilly 3 degrees here in Moscow and we are now having some late afternoon sleet.
6'
It has been a promising start from Leicester but then Spartak build slowly and Ayrton tries a long-range effort which is well WIDE!
8'
Spartak now secure a corner and the delivery is cleared before Maddison is fouled for a Leicester free-kick.
9'
Daka is on a great run down the right and his cross looks perfect but Iheanacho just cannot sort his legs out and an opportunity is wasted by Leicester.
11'
GOAL, SPARTAK MOSCOW, SOBOLEV! 1-0: And just like that we have a goal against the run of play.
12'
Spartak build slowly and then Bakaev finds Sobolev. His first shot is blocked and after some more goal mouth action it falls for Sobolev and he finds the back of the net via a deflection.
13'
SAVED! Maddison is into a gap and Leicester almost responds quickly. That was a brilliant save by Maksimenko. The subsequent corner finds the head of Evans but he is WIDE!
17'
Leicester have continued with their aggressive play despite going a goal down. Maddison finds Tielemans, who shoots it OVER! That was a poor finish. By Tielemans' standards that was POOR!
19'
Maddison now has his shirt tucked back for a Leicester free-kick near halfway. It then leads to a Leicester corner.
21'
Daka is guilty of leaning on Ayrton after the corner and Spartak have a free-kick.
22'
It has been a fantastic opening 22 minutes from Leicester but they find themselves behind on the score sheet.

28'
Maddison takes the set-piece quickly and finds Iheanacho, who's shot is BLOCKED!

32'
NO PENALTY! Daka is down after losing out against three defenders and again Leicester misses an opportunity.
33'
YELLOW! Litvinov is the second in the book after a blatant foul on Maddison.
35'

38'
NO PENALTY! We have a stoppage in play and Daka is down in the area needing attention.
40'
Maddison floats in the latest Leicester free-kick but he hits his own team-mate. What was happening there?

44'
GOAL, LEICESTER CITY, LARRSON! 2-0: Oh dear! Moses crosses it in from wide and it's perfect for Larrsson, who turns and pushes it past Schmeichel. That was after an initial mistake from Soyuncu.
45'
HALF-TIME: SPARTAK MOSCOW 2-1 LEICESTER CITY. A lifeline for Leicester on the stroke of the break after going 2-0 down initially. They have been the better team but they lag behind on the score sheet.
45'
GOAL, LEICESTER CITY, DAKA! 2-1: It's the perfect through-ball from Iheanacho and the flag stays down. Daka does the rest despite the keeper getting a hand to it.

Kick-Off! We are back underway in the second half.
47'
Leicester have it all to do here if they want any chance of progressing to the next stage.
48'
GOAL, LEICESTER CITY, DAKA! 2-2: Thomas sends another perfect through-ball to Iheanacho on the edge of the box. He unselfishly crosses to Daka, who makes no mistake with the finish.
50'
And suddenly in the blink of an eye Leicester draw level and are looking dangerous again.
54'
GOAL, LEICESTER CITY, DAKA! 2-3: A HAT-TRICK for DAKA! Maddison finds Tielemans, who sends a brilliant ball to Daka on the edge of the box. He waits and then nutmegs the keeper for his hat-trick. Class from Tielemans.

76'
Can Leicester hold their nerve here in Moscow over the next 14 minutes plus stoppage time.
79'
GOAL, LEICESTER CITY, DAKA! 2-4: Maddison is into gap and sends a perfect pass to Daka to the left of the Spartak area. He controls it well before sending it to the right of the keeper and into the net! BRILLIANT!
