Goals, Assists, Debuts & Big Wins – How City’s Loanees Began February

Five Leicester City loanees played their part for their respective clubs across Europe and in England over the last week.

- An assist and win for Victor Kristiansen’s Bologna
- Boubakary Soumaré also tasted victory in La Liga
- Luke Thomas made his Middlesbrough debut
- Lewis Brunt helped Mansfield to a League 2 triumph
- Zach Booth netted in the Eredivisie for the first time

Victor Kristiansen started Bologna’s 4-2 home victory over Sassuolo last weekend, playing 82 minutes of the Serie A contest. 2-1 down at the break, I Rossoblù rallied in the second half, with the on-loan Foxes full-back assisting Giovanni Fabbian’s equaliser, before two late goals sealed a success which keeps the club sixth in the table.

Two points behind fifth-placed Roma, with a game in hand, Bologna host Leece at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara on Sunday (2pm kick-off) with the 21-year-old hoping to make his 21st appearance of the season.

Across Europe in Spain, Boubakary Soumaré saw out the whole 90 minutes once again for Sevilla, who triumphed 2-1 at Rayo Vallecano on Monday.

A first league success of 2024, it moves Rojiblancos up to 15th in La Liga, with Atlético Madrid up next at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán this Sunday (5:30pm kick-off). The French midfielder could feature for the 21st time this campaign.

In the Sky Bet Championship, left-back Luke Thomas was introduced from the bench for his Middlesbrough debut in a 1-1 draw with Sunderland. The former England youth international played the final six minutes of the Tees-Wear derby.

Inside the top half of the second-tier standings, Michael Carrick’s outfit host Bristol City this Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Further down the EFL, Mansfield got back to winning ways in Sky Bet League 2, with young centre-back Lewis Brunt featuring across the 90 minutes for the Stags as they beat Notts County 1-0 at the weekend.

Helping to keep a clean sheet at Field Mill, the defender may make his 30th outing for the side currently second in the division when travelling to face Forest Green Rovers tomorrow (Saturday) in a 3pm kick-off.

Elsewhere, Zach Booth scored his first goal for FC Volendam but couldn’t prevent the Eredivisie club falling to a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Utrecht last weekend.

Playing 80 minutes at Stadion Galgenwaard, a 15th appearance awaits against league leaders PSV on Sunday (3:45pm kick-off), with Palingboeren aiming to move out of the relegation zone.

Nathan Opoku was an unused substitute for OH Leuven in back-to-back wins for the Belgian club, beating both KRC Genk and KVC Westerlo in successive games to rise into 12th position in the league standings, on 24 points from 24 matches.

The Ghanian forward has one goal and one assist to his name from 12 Jupiler Pro League fixtures and will be hoping for minutes when Leuven meet Standard de Liège this Saturday (3pm kick-off).
