Leicester City’s run in this season’s Europa League came to an end after they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of SK Slavia Prague on Thursday.

Slavia Prague had an advantage coming into the return leg tie at the King Power Stadium after the first leg ended in a goalless draw.

Two second half goals from Lukáš Provod and teenage star Abdallah Sima were sufficient for the visitors to progress to the next round of the Europa League.

Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was honest in admitting the Premier League side deserved elimination from the European competition.

“We didn’t score, it’s that simple. If we’re going to be honest after those two games, it’s probably a fair result. They had more chances than us and they took them, so we have nothing to complain about,” he told Eurosport Denmark, as relayed by Tipsbladet.

The 34-year-old also detailed what went wrong for Brendan Rodgers’ side in their defeat on Thursday.

“We didn’t deliver as well as we could, and when they’re also a team that pushes high on the field, it gave us trouble holding on the ball. They did a good job,” he explained.

Leicester have been hit by injuries this season, but the disappointed Denmark international backed the team picked by Rodgers.

“The players and the team that were on the pitch were more than able to do the job, but we just weren’t good enough,” Schmeichel concluded.

With the Europa League out of the way, Leicester have only the FA Cup and Premier League to focus on this season.
