Leicester City (0) vs. (1) Atletico Madrid: Champions League Quarter-Final Second Leg – Match Preview

Leicester City will need to overturn a one goal deficit when they entertain Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League Quarter-Final.

A controversial Antoine Griezmann penalty was the difference last week in the Vicente del Calderon.

Marc Albrighton appeared to foul the forward outside the box, but the Frenchman converted from the spot to give Atletico an advantage to take to the King Power.

Leicester City let a two goal lead slip on the weekend away at Crystal Palace, although they did rotate the side with Tuesday in mind.

Atletico Madrid continued their good domestic form, easing past Osasuna to cement third spot.
