The Leicester City footballers winning against Aston Villa in the 25th round stood out in second place in the English Championship standings with a 2-1 (2-0) away.

In the middle of the first half, the guests from Leicester gained a key advantage when they took a 2-0 lead with goals from Maddison in the 19th and Barnes in the 23rd minute.

First, Maddison, assisted by Barnes, hit with a precise shot from 20 meters, and then Barnes cleared the ball into the goal after the home goalkeeper Martinez only managed to deflect a strong shot by Vardy.

When Traore defeated Schmeichel from close range in the 48th minute the home team returned to the game at the beginning of the second half, but the result did not change until the end of the match.

The second Leicester now has 49 points, seven less than the leading Manchester City, which is visiting Arsenal from 5.30 pm, and three more than the third Manchester United, which will host Newcastle United from 8 pm. Aston Villa is eighth with 36 points and two games less.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
