  • End of 2nd Half

And that is full-time. Leicester's players collapse to the ground, their dream is over at the quarter-final stage after going down 2-1 on aggregate following a 1-1 draw.


Albrighton's effort is blocked by Hernandez, its played in again and Savic heads it behind for a corner. The delivery comes in, Schmeichel is up for the corner, it falls to Vardy with his back to goal but his flick is tame and straight at the keeper.


There will be four added minutes.


The game is petering out now, the Leicester players look spent after an energetic second half display.

KICK-OFF: Leicester get the second period underway.

  • End of 1st Half

HALF-TIME: Atletico lead 1-0 courtesy of a fine header from Saul. Leicester have struggled to get into the game and need three goals to qualify.


Albrighton has some space to send in a cross but Oblak comes and gathers comfortably.


Vardy is working tirelessly but is isolated up front, Mahrez may have to play further forward to give the visitors' defence more of a test.


SO CLOSE! Benalouane with a silly challenge on the edge of the area, Carrasco goes past him but Schmeichel comes off his line and Leicester somehow get the ball clear.


Luis tries an ambitious shot from distance from the left side which he blasts into the stand. He has had a good game but that was a bit of a waste from the ex-Chelsea player.


The visitors are toying with Leicester, Griezman sets up a fine passing move by getting past Drinkwater. They are in no hurry at all to get a shot away.


Leicester have a corner, its partially cleared. The clearance falls to Mahrez who fires an effort in from distance but its straight at Oblak. Simeone is furious that no-one got close to the Algerian.


A cross from Vardy is deflected off Gimenez, who drops back to defend. The home side need to take a few more risks, Atleti's defensive unit has rarely been troubled.


The wind looks to have been taken from Leicester's sails. Atleti break, Saul fires an effort from around 25 yards which is straight at Schmeichel.


One chance, one goal for Atleti. Leicester have it all to do now, they need three goals. Extra time is now no longer possible.

GOAL! Luis with a brilliant cross to the far post for the unmarked Saul who heads the ball into the bottom corner past Schmeichel to make it 1-0.


SO CLOSE! Mahrez goes past Luis and runs at the Atleti defence, takes one touch too many, the ball falls to Vardy who is flagged off-side. He would have been through on goal if the Algerian had released the ball earlier.


Mahrez wins a free-kick on the right after being tripped by Griezmann. The set-piece is whipped in by Mahrez but Oblak gathers in his six-yard box, disappointing looping delivery.


CHANCE! Mahrez feeds Vardy on the wing, he eventually pulls the ball back for Okazaki who under pressure from Godin stabs his effort wide of the goal.


We have reached the midway point of the first half and it has been predictably tense. Neither keeper has been forced into a save.


A huge roar erupts as Leicester have a corner after Albrighton's cross is blocked. Mahrez's delivery is cleared by Luis though.



A ball is played behind the Leicester defence for Juanfran who just fails to control it, that was a close shave for the Foxes after Albrighton had switched off at the back.


Ndidi has some space on the right, he tries to whip in a cross but it takes a deflection and falls to Oblak. Just a reminder that Leicester need to score tonight to give themselves a chance of progressing.


Atletico are enjoying more possession. Godin plays a long raking ball for Saul who unleashes a 30-yard effort but it goes well wide.


SO CLOSE: Simpson blocks a low cross from Carrasco for a corner, that was a good piece of defending as Griezmann was free. Koke's delivery to the near post is cleared by Drinkwater to deal with the danger.


Half a chance for the Foxes, Okazaki feeds Drinkwater who snatches at an effort, it takes a deflection but is off target.


Brilliant defending from Godin to shepherd Vardy as a low cross is put into the near post by Albrighton.


A good ball is whipped into the box by Fuchs for Okazaki who is 12 yards out but his header is weak and bounces kindly for Oblak. Cagey is the name of the game in the opening exchanges.


A couple of tasty challenges already from both sides, one from Godin and one from Vardy.


A very patient start from the visitors, Griezmann looked to be in a good position near the penalty area but opted to pass the ball back.


CHANCE: Griezmann pokes a shot from the edge of the area towards goal but it is tame and rolls through to Schmeichel.


KICK-OFF: Atletico, in their red and white shirt, get the game underway.


FIVE MINUTES TILL KICK-OFF: Will Leicester be in Friday's draw for the semi-finals?


Diego Godin has been full of praise for Jamie Vardy, saying the striker is good enough to get into the Atleti team due to his work rate and ability to play as a lone striker. It will be a fascinating matchup tonight after the Uruguay defender nullified the threat of Vardy in last week's first leg.


Ahead of the game, Shakespeare said: "It's a big bonus to have Morgan back. He has been training for the last three days. We wanted to check Wes this morning but he's ready to go. We're underdogs tonight, but we've been underdogs before."



A huge boost for the home side with Morgan making his first start since the 2-0 win over Sevilla last month with Huth suspended. Drinkwater and Ndidi return to the line-up after being rested for the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.


STATS: This will be a formidable task for Craig Shakespeare's side: Atletico are unbeaten in ten games and have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine matches. They were the only side to prevent Leicester from scoring in 10 fixtures.


Diego Simeone has also shuffled his pack with no Torres or Gameiro in the line-up with Carrasco playing alongside Griezmann. And Gimenez starts in central midfield with Saul moved to the right wing.


The Foxes, who have a 100 per cent record at home in the Champions League, welcome back skipper Wes Morgan for this vital clash following a back injury which saw him miss the first leg.


Hello and welcome to LIVE commentary of the second leg between Leicester City and Atletico Madrid. The Spanish side hold a 1-0 lead on aggregate so it should be a tense affair. Kick-off at the KP Stadium is at 19:45 GMT.
