Leicester v Atletico Madrid Champions League Match Preview & Betting Odds

Leicester face a huge test when they welcome Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night for the Champions League quarter-final second leg.

The Spanish side recorded a narrow 1-0 win in the first leg at the Vicente Calderon. Atletico are also favourites to win this clash at odds of 23/20 with Coral, while the home side can be backed at odds of 14/5 with Bet365.

Those odds are understandable, as the reigning English champions have now failed to win any of their last three competitive games, after winning their first six games under temporary boss Craig Shakespeare.

Last time out the Foxes throw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Crystal Palace. Despite that recent downturn in fortunes the side from the Midlands have scored at least two goals in eight of their last nine games in all competitions. The only exception was the first leg of this tie and that could prove crucial.

Shakespeare’s side progressed past Spanish opposition Sevilla in the last round after losing the first leg of the tie but winning the reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium. However, the key to that tie was picking up an away goal, something they have not in this quarter-final clash.

Leicester’s recent home record is good, as they have won their last five games on home soil in all competitions, netting at least twice in all five victories. The Foxes have also won all four of their Champions League games on home soil.

Atletico Madrid head into this clash in good form, having gone unbeaten in ten games in all competitions. Diego Simeone’s side have also won seven of their last nine games in the Champions League.

Away from the Spanish capital Diego Simeone’s team have won three of their last four games in Europe’s elite competition, so will be difficult opposition for the home side.
