Leicester’s excellent run under Craig Shakespeare came to an abrupt halt with their 4-2 defeat at Goodison Park at the weekend, however they need to bounce back from that disappointment in emphatic fashion tonight when they lock horns with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderón Stadium.
It is something of a surprise to see the Foxes outlast Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City in this season’s Champions League and they are now a mere two matches away from an appearance in the last four of the competition, a tremendous achievement by anybody’s standards.
Leicester City produced an amazing comeback in their two-legged last-sixteen tie with Sevilla by clawing their way back from 2-1 down in the first leg to win 2-0 at the King Power Stadium in the return fixture and their reward is a meeting with an Atletico Madrid side which will be desperate to go all the way in this tournament having reached the final in two of the last three years.
In all honesty, the home side should have little difficulty in dealing effectively with Shakespeare’s men given that they have lost just once in their last fourteen games in all competitions. Indeed Diego Simeone’s men have lost just four times at home this term with three of those coming against Real Madrid and Barcelona, therefore a win against the Foxes looks pretty much a banker.
