King stepped up and fired the ball into the bottom right-hand corner, past the Danish goalkeeper to equalise.
The game wasn’t equal for long though as Leicester’s goalscorer Maddison delivered a sweet flicked through ball to Vardy, who notched his first of the afternoon.
The Leicester pair would combine once more, on this occasion from a corner, as Maddison chipped the ball to Vardy who nodded in from the near post unmarked.
Just before the break, Bachmann was forced to stop the Foxes marksman from notching a first-half hat-trick, producing a good stop from point-blank range to deny Vardy.
During the interval, Ranieri didn’t hesitate to rotate the side, taking Cleverley and Imrân Louza off with Joāo Pedro and Ozan Tufan tasked with making the difference.
With the pitch almost blanket white following the restart, Schmeichel produced a great save to deny King his second from close range. The chance was created courtesy of the hard work from the energetic Hernández, who seemed to take on every Leicester defender before picking out the Norwegian.
