Atletico came away from the first leg at home with 1-0 advantage through an Antoine Griezmann penalty that was somewhat controversial. Leicester looked completely overmatched physically against Diego Simeone’s men. They were lucky to come away down only one goal.
Leicester will be without both of their first choice center-backs in the second leg. Wes Morgan will likely be out due to injury and Robert Huth will be out with a suspension after picking up a yellow card in the first leg. Without an away goal Leicester’s job is even tougher in the second leg. The problem worsens when you need keep Griezmann and company off the score sheet without their two centre-backs.

Atletico Madrid are one of the best counterattacking teams in the world. As they focus on absorbing Leicester’s pressure, they’ll be keen to snap back on the counter to get the all valuable away goal.
