Disputed Griezmann penalty gives Atletico edge over Leicester

Disputed Griezmann penalty gives Atletico edge over Leicester

The Foxes were last night defeated 1-0 by Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

In the end, both teams came away from their Champions League quarterfinal match relatively satisfied and looking ahead to next week's second leg in England.

"I asked the ref about the decision after the game and he said the foul was on the line".

Atletico coach Diego Simeone recognised the difficulties of playing at the King Power and said he expects a raucous atmosphere in Leicester.

They defended well and were vigilant although Atletico's one-paced second-half performance played into their hands.

"These are the days in which I say that the fans have to be there and what we need is that they not only come to see a football match but they come to be another player". Overall 1-0 is not a bad result.

"He's a fabulous player", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said of the French global.

Kidambi Srikanth, B Sai Praneeth in semifinal action
Olympic 2016 runner-up Sindhu suffered a taming 11-21, 15-21 defeat at the hands of her Rio conqueror Carolina Marin of Spain. Ginting then miscued a net dribble to give Srikanth the game point and then hit long as the Indian pocketed the opening game.

The Belgian worldwide was denied, however, when Kasper Schmeichel raced off his line to close down the angle and the striker saw his close-range shot deflect to safety off the legs of the Leicester keeper.

Andy King's introduction at the halftime interval did seem to spark some life into Leicester's attack, but they still didn't create too many clear-cut chances.

The France striker was fouled by Leicester's Marc Albrighton on the edge of the box and referee Jonas Eriksson deemed the action to have continued into the penalty area.

Footage posted online showed officers being targeted with missiles and fans chanting "Gibraltar is ours" in the Plaza Major, where Leicester's fans were told they could congregate.

Palace then swiftly responded through Yohan Cabaye and, with Christian Benteke's equalising goal, secured the draw that took them up to 15th, seven points clear of the bottom three. It's a definite free-kick but it's out of the box. "They bet everything on the second leg".

Leicester struggled from the start and never threatened Atletico at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, finishing the game with no attempts on target. We want to win every game we play, we knew it was going to be hard. "We know it is a going to be a very hard return match, but we have very good record at the King Power". What happens in the summer can only happen in the summer and can only be talked about, for me, when we are safe.
