Champions League: Griezmann stars as Atletico Madrid outplay Leicester City

The big German will be suspended for Leicester's second-leg clash with Atletico Madrid

The 33-year-old Jamaica worldwide is doubtful for the second leg as well and with Huth also forced to sit out, Leicester are expected to face a tough time when Atletico visit the King Power Stadium for the second leg next week.

"He's quite whole. You don't understand what position he plays in".

The VAR system was trialled successfully in Spain's recent 2-0 friendly win away to France, ironically denying Antoine Griezmann a strike that was ruled offside after review, since the Atletico star got the benefit of the current less sophisticated use of additional assistant referees in Wednesday's match at the Vicente Calderon. The performance gives them hope for the return leg of their quarter-final tie at the King Power Stadium next week.

Atletico Madrid struck in the first half at home to English Premier League champions Leicester City.

Shakespeare is already without his other first-choice centre-back, Robert Huth, due to suspension.

The 27-year-old conceded it was a foul but was adamant Eriksson made a first-half blunder.

Indeed, they've lost four of their last six Champions League away knockout games since 2014/15 and while they faced the likes of Bayern and Barca in that time, we're looking to take them on at the prices.

If Leicester City play with the same vigour and determination they showed to take a two-goal lead against a spirited Crystal Palace on Saturday, then Atletico Madrid's defenders could be in for a trying evening tomorrow. "We know what we have to do and we can't sit back for 90 minutes because we need to score". We can't afford to dwell on it and we have to put it out of our minds as soon as possible.

"I can't wait and I think everyone else can't wait either", said Drinkwater.

"Their upturn in form doesn't surprise me", said Shakespeare.

"It's fantastic to play in them and we're really looking forward to it".

Leicester thought they had a tough night tonight, it will be a lot tougher next week.

Andy King's introduction at the halftime interval did seem to spark some life into Leicester's attack, but they still didn't create too many clear-cut chances.

"I don't think anybody wants to come here".

Australia's A-League trialled the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system earlier this month, while it was also put to the test by Federation Internationale de Football Association during a recent global friendly between France and Spain.

"We are still alive", Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said.
