The Foxes will travel down to Vicente Calderon to face Atletico on Wednesday, April 12, 2017.
Atletico is in the European Cup quarter-finals competition for the 9th time in a row. Leicester is the 50th club to reach UEFA Champions League quarter-final for the most number of times. Atletico has never been defeated by an English Club at their homeland. Leicester emerged victorious in the knockout round of 16.
The team is not expected to have a full squad since Miguel Moya, Sime Vrsaljko, Kevin Gameiro, Augusto Fernandez, Nico Gaitan and Tiago are less likely to attend the match.
Antoine Griezmann is certainly worth a mention since he is the star performer this season. Saúl Ñíguez and Jan Oblak are young talent performing well in the team.
Atletico Madrid can be better called as Champions League specialists. The teams have been appearing in the last two finals with their good performance. Their last match against the Bernebeu ended with a 1-1 draw. This added to an eight match undefeated streak out of which five have ended in Madrid’s favour.
Wes Morgan, Nampalys Mendy, Molla Wague, and Wilfred Ndidi might not be present in this match.
Players like Christian Fuchs and Kasper Schmeichel have proved their worth in the team.
Leicester’s future in the series looked grim when they suffered a defeat on the hands of Sevilla with a 2-1 score in the first leg of the last round. After this match the team’s record added to one victory, one draw and seven defeats in the last ten matches played. After a rather shaky record, the team has won the last four matches, loosing only one against Everton.
