Porto kicked off as the first ever Champions League fixture arrived at the King Power Stadium.
The 3rd minute saw Porto see their first sight of goal as a long ball to Silva was misjudged by Schmeichel who left his goal open.
Luckily for Leicester City fans, Silva’s back was to goal, making the shot difficult and the ball went just wide.
In the 8th minute Layun cut in from the left and tried a shot from range. The ambitious effort was on target but never troubled Kasper Schmeichel.
The 10th minute had half of the King Power stadium jumping for joy as Fuchs’ long throw found Felipe’s head who saw the ball fly just wide of his own net. Close one.
The best chance of the opening third came from Slimani in the 14th minute as his headed effort is saved by Casillas as the keeper does well to get low to meet the ball.
The first booking of the game came in the 23rd minute as Silva entered the referee’s book.
He wasn’t alone in the book for long however as a silly push on a Porto player saw Jamie Vardy receive a yellow card. A silly decision from Vardy to say the least.
Riyad Mahrez lined up the freekick that resulted from Silva’s foul but after much anticipation, the ball hit the Porto wall and nothing came from it.
The only goal came in the 26th minute as Marc Albrighton switched an inch perfect ball into Mahrez’s feet which put the Porto defence on the back foot.
Mahrez proceeded to curl in a fantastic in-swinging corner which beats Jamie Vardy but lands on the head of Islam Slimani.
Well we are playing Porto, who else would it have been?
Leicester City 1 – FC Porto (26, Slimani)
At this point it was all Leicester.
In the 32nd minute Jamie Vardy held off a challenge, turning his defender.
The following cross however was just in-front of Mahrez and as the ball left the box, Slimani got booked whilst trying to pressure the Porto defender.
Two minutes later, Luis Hernandez threw a ball to the back post.
As Albrighton volleyed the ball towards goal the referee blew for a foul by Huth.
Following a misjudged challenge by Leicester City captain Wes Morgan, Porto had a freekick just outside the home team’s box.
A great effort from Layun flew just wide of Kasper Schmeichel’s goal.
The 43rd minute saw Spanish legend and FC Porto keeper Iker Casillas come under pressure yet again as Mahrez’s long freekick was put into the box.
Luckily for the Spaniard the referee blew for a foul on Huth. The towering German needed to be more careful from set-pieces as this referee was a little soft.
In the 45th minute Porto won themselves a corner but much to the amusement of Leicester City fans, he blows for halftime.
The Porto players didn’t find it quite as funny.
As the two sides head into the tunnel, the visitors trail 1 goal to nil.
Halftime: Leicester City 1 – 0 FC Porto
