Leicester v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

Antonie Griezmann

Craig Shakespeare says Leicester City were unlucky during his side's 1-0 defeat to Atlético Madrid at the Vicente Calderón on Wednesday night.

But the 30-year-old was still upset after referee Jonas Eriksson awarded a first-half penalty despite Marc Albrighton fouling Griezmann outside the box. Atletico looked like they might run away with things in the early stages but they'll have been happy to have kept the clean sheet as they bid to make their third semi-final in the last four seasons.

Leicester are working with UEFA and local authorities in Spain to discover why their fans were involved in crowd trouble before the Champions League quarter-final at Atletico Madrid.

Arturo Vidal sent Bayern ahead in the 25th minute of the contest, but the Chilean missed a penalty on the stroke of the interval, before Cristiano Ronaldo's double in the second period turned the last-eight tie around.

With Wes Morgan now missing through injury, Leicester could end up with an untested center back partnership in the biggest game in its history.

One worry for Leicester was the booking picked up by Robert Huth, which rules him out of the second leg.

'We were always on the tightrope with people like Robert because he's a very competitive centre-half'.

Atletico played well Wednesday and should have done better than the narrow 1-0 victory, but the players and coach Diego Simeone were celebrating the advantage they will be carrying into the return match on Tuesday.

In game 3, Russell Westbrook continued taking the lead for the Thunder, scoring 35 points, 14 rebounds, 14 assists, and 3 steals. Westbrook finished with 47 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists but connected on just two of his 11 shots in the final period.

"Maybe [it can provide motivation, but] we have a game at the weekend so we need to put it out of our minds as soon as possible and move on".

He said: "My team played a very good game but after we went to 1-0 our rival defended very well".

"We understand we're powerful at home and hopefully we are able to cause them some difficulties there".

"We controlled and dominated them at all times". The conversation will be with Wes and our medical department and we'll give him every opportunity between now and then but if he's not ready we won't take a gamble.

"We were hard done by", he said of the penalty incident.

I think they'll be quietly confident sitting in there and hitting Leicester on the counter attack.

"Griezmann is a fabulous player", Simeone told a post-match news conference.

"The second leg? I think they'll have more of the ball and take more risks, so we'll have to be ideal defensively". That's his verdict on it but TV replays have shown it was outside.
