The XI To Make History: Leicester Predicted Line-up v Atlético Madrid

By timgarrett IN Champions League,General,Lineup - 13:28 Apr 12th 2017

As thousands of Leicester fans congregate in the streets of Madrid this afternoon, one question will be on their lips: can we keep the fairytale going?

Having stunned Sevilla in the last round, the Foxes have shown that they aren’t simply in the competition to make up the numbers, but can they pull off one of the most incredible upsets in Champions League history by knocking out an Atlético Madrid side who have made 2 of the last 3 Champions League finals?

If they’re to do so then Craig Shakespeare will have to get his team selection absolutely spot on, and this is the XI we expect him to go with this evening:

Captain Wes Morgan is set to be ruled out by injury and will undoubtedly be a huge miss, but in Kasper Schmeichel, Danny Simpsons, Robert Huth, Yohan Benalouane and Christian Fuchs, Leicester have a back 5 that has won 100% of the games they have started together.

The majority of Leicester attacking threat will come from Riyad Mahrez, Marc Albrighton, Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki, and it’s a quartet that knows each other well. They have started together 33 times for the Foxes, and the side averaged over 2 goals per game during those matches.

There can be no doubt that this is Leicester’s biggest challenge yet, but maybe, just maybe, there’s enough magic left in the side for one more big upset.
