The Last 8 stage of the UEFA Champions League culminates this week with the second league, and one of the most tantalisingly close ties sees Leicester City host Atletico Madrid at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday, with the Foxes eyeing a shock semifinal qualification.
Craig Shakespeare’s men come into this match on the back of a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday Christian Benteke and Yohan Cabaye cancelled out the goals from Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy. The result kept Leicester in 12th place on 37 points, 3 adrift of a place in the Top half.
Meanwhile, the visitors extended their unbeaten run to 10 in all competitions thanks to a 3-0 win over Osasuna on Saturday, as goals from Yannick Carrasco (tw0) and Filipe Luis kept Atletico in third place in the La Liga table.
The reverse leg at the Vicente Calderon ended in a hard fought 1-0 win for Diego Simeone’s men as Antoine Griezmann’s penalty made the difference for Los Rojiblancos. The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the second leg at the King Power Stadium.
