    Leicester Vs Atletico Madrid

    Leicester Team News

    Robert Huth is suspended for the hosts but Craig Shakespeare has confirmed captain Wes Morgan is in line to return to the team after a six game absence with a back injury.

    Daniel Amartey is on standby to partner up alongside Yohan Benalouane at the heart of the defence just in case Morgan is not fit enough to start.

    Wilfried Ndidi is a doubt for Leicester, while Nampalys Mendy and Molla Wague are ruled out.

    Atletico Madrid Team News

    Diego Simeone is without injured quartet Augusto Fernandez, Miguel Moya and Sime Vrsaljko.

    Kevin Gameiro has been included in the squad after his recovery from injury but Fernando Torres should start alongside Antoine Griezmann in attack.

    Other than that, wholesale changes aren't expected.

    Match Facts


    There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 8 of Atletico's last 10 games (UEFA Champions League)

    Atletico are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 matches (UEFA Champions League)


    Predictions

    Leicester face an uphill task to secure a place in the next round of the Champions League as they look to overcome the one-goal deficit against Atletico Madrid. It's hardly a insurmountable challenge for the Foxes, with they needing to do similar when they faced Sevilla in the last round and securing a 2-0 win on home turf.

    Atletico know they need to avoid defeat to secure their place in the next round of the competition and are unbeaten in their last 12 away from the Calderon. Diego Simeone's side have also lost just one of their last 10 Champions League outings.

    With Leicester struggling at the back, Atletico should secure a narrow win at the King Power Stadium.

    Leicester 0-1 Atletico Madrid
