But Europe is the priority, with Craig Shakespeare's side only trailing 1-0 to Atletico heading into the second leg at the King Power Stadium.

The Belgium global 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.

Jamie Vardy and Leicester have been in good form (Adam Davy/PA) Despite both teams' presence in the bottom half of the Premier League table, had either won, they would have had a record of six league victories from their last seven games. The Foxes have beaten Liverpool 3-1 and Man City 4-2 at the King Power this season and history tells us that we can expect goals in this one too.

"Leicester knew what they wanted (here) and didn't change the way they played".

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

But the defender was booked minutes later when he clipped Koke and will now be banned for the second leg.

Then, after working his way into the box, the Leicester striker cut inside and placed a left-footed shot wide of Hennessey that the keeper could only parry into the net.

But former Leicester manager Martin O'Neill, who commentated on the game for television, believes Leicester can emulate the 2-0 home win they managed against Sevilla. "But we know we still have a challenge ahead against a very good team". "If we play our game, I'm certain that we will be able to advance". "We know it is going to be a hard return match but we have a very good record at the King Power", Shakespeare asserted.
