Saul Niguez put Los Colcheneros as he headed in Felipe Luiz's lofty cross past Kaspar Schmeichel in the 26th minute to give the away side the advantage at the King Power Stadium.

English striker Jamie Vardy capitalised on a defensive mishap to level the score line for the Foxes in the 60th minute.

The 22-year-old versatile player came on to replace captain Wes Morgan, who sustained an injury in the 84th minute.
