Atletico Madrid sealed their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League as they held Leicester 1-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Saul Niguez’s first-half header was enough to secure their place in the next round for the away side as they await tomorrow’s results to find out their next opponents.

Leicester put up a stern fight but were unable to beat the Spanish outfit, who won 2-1 on aggregate.

The La Liga outfit opened the scoring when Filipe Luis’ cross found it’s way to Saul at the back post and he thumped home a header into the bottom corner.

Leicester levelled the score in the 61st minute on the night. Ben Chilwell fired the ball across goal and Jamie Vardy was on hand to slot the ball in.

Atletico were able to hold on with the help of some stoic defending at the back, from Stefan Savic in particular, to keep Leicester out.

Here is how we rated Diego Simeone’s side…
