Atletico and Leicester both relatively satisfied with result

Elsewhere, Real Madrid came from behind to beat 10-man Bayern Munich 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

Jamie Vardy and Leicester have been in good form (Adam Davy/PA) Despite both teams' presence in the bottom half of the Premier League table, had either won, they would have had a record of six league victories from their last seven games. "We know we are strong at home and I am sure we can cause them problems". "He's a complete player, you don't even know his position anymore, he's all over the pitch".

"In terms of recovery we've had this fixture planned for a while", Shakespeare said.

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

Atletico coach Diego Simeone lamented his side's inability to kill the tie, but lauded Leicester's defensive effort.

Leicester's official fan allocation was around 2,800 for the match at the Vicente Calderon, which ended 1-0 to the hosts, thanks to a disputed penalty.

"We can take them back to ours and hopefully turn over the deficit, like the last tie", Leicester midfielder Andy King said.

Atletico opened the scoring in controversial fashion in the 28th minute - Leicester had enjoyed a good spell of possession, but were caught on the break by Antoine Griezmann, who ran nearly the length of the pitch before being brought down by Mark Albrighton.

Referee Jonas Eriksson awarded the La Liga giants a spot kick on 28 minutes after Marc Albrighton tangled with Antoine Griezmann but replays showed that the incident occurred outside the penalty area.

Shakespeare has halted Leicester's slide since succeeding Claudio Ranieri while Allardyce has overseen five wins in six games to fire Palace's survival bid.

The second leg takes place Tuesday in England.

Leicester then survived a scare when Huth was beaten by Fernando Torres but the former Liverpool striker slipped as he shot and the ball bounced out for a throw in.

"We were always on the tightrope with people like Robert because he's a very competitive centre-half. It's a definite foul, but it's outside the box". What happens in the summer can only happen in the summer and can only be talked about, for me, when we are safe. "We know it is a going to be a very hard return match, but we have very good record at the King Power".
