Simeone expects

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare rued poor decision-making by the referee after his team was defeated by Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final here.

Leicester appeared comfortable when Jamie Vardy's second-half finish doubled the advantage built by Robert Huth's early header.

"You are talking about a Champions League quarter-final".

Leicester fans must have been fearing the worst but their side were able to slam the door on Atletico and went into halftime just one goal down.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said he had to tinker with his team's set-up to shackle the risky forward, who Simeone has given the license to roam. If that doesn't fancy your gambling interests, the both teams not to score is also a good bet since I don't think Palace will concede with the defence they have at the moment.

"We will be more aggressive in our play going forward and take a couple more chances".

"I've not spoken with him recently but when he was given the job I called him and said: "Welcome to the madhouse". We know what it's about", Shakespeare said.

Schmeichel had saved a penalty in each of Leicester's two legs against Sevilla in the last 16 and Griezmann had missed his last four for Atletico, including in last season's Champions League final.

Swedish ref Eriksson awarded a spot-kick for Marc Albrighton's foul on Griezmann on the edge of the box.

The signs were not good for Palace with Leicester coming into the game backed by a record of having won every game they have scored first in, a record unmatched by any other Premier League side.

"I don't think we have too many options if I am honest, so I think it is vitally important we stay competitive in that area".

But Shakespeare said he can't afford to rest him at Selhurst Park with City still striving for the points that will guarantee their Premier League status. We know what we're about at the King Power. "We know it is going to be a hard return match but we have a very good record at the King Power", Shakespeare asserted.

Footage posted online showed a group of officers being targeted with missiles and fans chanting "Gibraltar is ours" in the Plaza Major, where Leicester's fans were told they could congregate.

The technical quality of Atletico's players was matched by a shrewd tactical plan from manager Diego Simeone that sought out the space Leicester tried to deny them.
