Atletico Madrid had the chance to rest Savic, Koke, Saul, Gabi and Griezmann as they beat Osasuna 3-0 in LaLiga with the crucial Champions League clash. Leicester rested Danny Drinkwater and Wes Morgan during their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on the same day.
Prior to the game, Diego Simeone said, “Leicester depends on the details, as we also depend on the details. It’s a well-worked and defensively balanced team and we are also similar like that. So it’s an evenly-matched and complex qualifier."
Kevin Gameiro is back in action after missing some time with a tow injury while Miguel Angel Moya has been cleared to play too. Atletico have conceded just four goals in ten games since losing to Barcelona in February and will be a very tough nut to crack for Leicester.
Atletico Madrid squad: Oblak, Moyá, Moreira; Juanfran, Godín, Giménez, Savic, Lucas, Filipe; Gabi, Koke, Saúl, Cerci, Thomas, Gaitán, Carrasco; Correa, Gameiro, Griezmann, Torres.
