Leicester boss Shakespeare questions referee decision after Atletico Madrid loss

Leicester boss Shakespeare questions referee decision after Atletico Madrid loss

Leicester City kept Atletico Madrid within reach as they restricted the dominant Spaniards to a single goal in their Champions League quarter-final first leg.

It was poor defending from the Foxes as they were allowed to break with Griezmann's exploding run from his own area, he made it all the way to the edge of the opposition box before been brought down by Marc Albrighton.

Elsewhere on Twitter, we thoroughly enjoyed this, from Carl Jones - undoubtedly tweet of the night.

The Spanish side outplayed the English champions in their quarter-final first leg but were only able to leave with Antoine Griezmann's penalty to their credit.

Leicester were aware that they could not afford a slow start against the Spanish giants, but it was one-way traffic during the opening stages as the home side threatened an early goal. As Carl points out, the camera appears to narrowly fail to make contact with the ball.

Despite their loss, Leicester's hopes of making the semi-finals are still alive, though they will need a repeat of their last-16 antics, where they overturned a one-goal deficit against Sevilla in their home leg.

"Well, Atletico went to the Bernabeu last week and drew, so I don't think they will be quaking in their boots going to the King Power!" We had a few on yellows and we knew it was a tightrope.

"I am happy with the work of my team, although the tie remains very open: 50 percent of the tie for each team".

'I will protect you!' Le Pen tells voters ahead of presidential election

"We are working with UEFA and the local authorities to establish the full facts of what took place and the reasons for the police response", a Leicester spokesman said. The German, a key component in the Leicester defence, will now be suspended for the second leg of the tie.

Boss Craig Shakespeare also criticised the referee. That said, with a grand total of 0 shots on target tonight, things aren't looking too great in the scoring department.

Hence, Atletico will surely have to step up their game when they visit the King Power Stadium next week if they want to proceed further in the Champions League. "After the 1-0 Leicester defended very well, sat deep, waited for a counter-attack and we couldn't create more chances".
