  • Craig Shakespeare will make a call on who should replace defender Robert Huth

Roy Keane has downplayed comments made by Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare and some of the players who are confident when facing Atletico Madrid at the King Power Stadium for the second leg of their quarter final clash in the Champions League, via the Independent.

Antoine Griezmann was tripped by Marc Albrighton who conceded the foul, but replays showed the collision happened outside the box, and a harsh penalty was awarded to the home side.

The Belgium worldwide came close to a victor soon after, but Schmeichel showed his class with a fine save to preserve a point for the Champions League quarter-finalists.

Arturo Vidal sent Bayern ahead in the 25th minute of the contest, but the Chilean missed a penalty on the stroke of the interval, before Cristiano Ronaldo's double in the second period turned the last-eight tie around.

Griezmann and Saul Niguez were next to take aim from outside the box, but both failed to find the target with powerful drives that flew over Kasper Schmeichel's goal.

"We know we have to be more open because we need a goal and one of Atletico's pluses is their ability on the counte-rattack", Shakespeare said.

"I think it is a disappointing moment, a key moment".

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. "Maybe we needed to be a bit more aggressive to get a better result, but we have to understand that even after going down a goal our opponent stayed playing tightly on defense".

Begum Jaan starts on decent note
As a foul-mouthed, fearsome brothel madam, Vidya Balan seemed nothing like what people have seen her. The only time she opens her mouth is to scream when Vidya hits her hard.

"He's trained yesterday, not all with the squad, but I have said before it will be 50-50 for Atletico Madrid".

He said: "I could see what was about to happen so I said "let's go and get something to eat". The pressure is constant and no one day is the same - but I don't like to eat the same thing for breakfast every day so that suits me".

This afternoon they go head to head as opposing managers when Leicester visit Selhurst Park.

"We were always on the tightrope with people like Robert because he's a very competitive centre-half.

We need to concentrate on Palace and try to get those points", he said.

"We have a very good home record at the King Power".

Simeone's side look set to battle Sevilla for the last automatic Champions League qualifying spot and the Argentine will demand all he can from his players, while hoping the fans can play their part.
