Burnley made a big step towards the Europa League


Burnley has made a major move to keep his seventh place, which is likely to secure a quota for participation in the European League after defeating 2:1 one of his direct rivals for this position, Leicester. Chris Wood (6 `) and Kevin Long (9 `) gave an early advance to the hosts, which proved to be enough. Jamie Vardi (72 `) one shot after the break. The match started very well for the hosts who had two goals ahead of the ninth minute. Wes Morgan lost the ball in front of the guest`s field, Barnes found Wood on the left. The New Zealander shook, Shamehler knocked his shot, but the ball again fell to Wood`s foot, who did not miss out on his second attempt. Three minutes later, Long doubled after he headed head to head at Gudmundson. After the bad start, Leicester revived, but Nick Pope refused Marseil and Vardi with two great rescues. In the 62nd minute, Burnley`s guard stepped in again decisively after Vardi came out against him but failed to overcome it. In the 72nd minute, Jamie Vardi returned a shot after being taken out of Ianassho, and this time he fired past Pope for his fifth consecutive goal in a visit to his team. The unpleasant news for Leicester, besides the loss, was that in the 86th minute Kasper Schmeijel suffered an injury and was forcibly replaced. Burnley and Leicester stand at seventh and eighth place respectively, with `foxes` now losing nine points in their current rival. Seventh place will ensure participation in the Europa League unless Southampton won the FA Cup.
