Atletico and Leicester both relatively satisfied with result

Eight Leicester City supporters have been handed four-month suspended prison terms after they clashed with Spanish police in Madrid on Tuesday (11 April) ahead of their Champions League quarter-final clash. "It's a definite foul, but it's outside the box".

Craig Shakespeare accused referee Jonas Eriksson of endangering Leicester's Champions League dream after Antoine Griezmann's controversial penalty.

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

Leicester struggled from the start and never threatened Atletico at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, finishing the game with no attempts on target.

Sam Allardyce has won his last two home games against reigning Premier League champions as a manager, beating Manchester City with West Ham in 2014-15 and beating Chelsea with Sunderland in 2015-16. As Carl points out, the camera appears to narrowly fail to make contact with the ball.

Crystal Palace have alternated between victory and defeat in their four home Premier League games against Leicester, keeping a clean sheet in each win and failing to score in each defeat.

"I think we were hard done by", Shakespeare said.

"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!"

Griezmann sent Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel the wrong way from the spot after 28 minutes although the hosts could not add to their advantage in the remainder of the encounter and Fernando Torres missed a good chance to double the lead.

The situation turned even more bleak for Leicester when central defender Robert Huth was shown a yellow card in the second half. It remains unclear if captain Wes Morgan will recover in time from a back injury. "We have a few on yellows, so we knew it was a tightrope". We are going to have to. "It would be nice to see it get trialled and see how it works out, but we can't dwell on it too much".

"If we play our game, I'm certain that we will be able to advance".
