Leicester are underdogs against Atletico, says Fuchs

In fact, after the second leg, a third of Leicester's games in European competition will have taken place against Atletico Madrid (6 out of 18). "We are aware of what we need to do for the second leg".

But Leicester managed to keep the France striker at bay for the rest of the game and Fuchs is hopeful he and his fellow defenders will not be given the runaround in Tuesday's return leg.

Unsurprisingly, several Leicester fans took to Twitter to express their views on Wednesday's encounter, with many pleased at their side's solid performance against the Spanish giants... It was provoked but it did get a bit tasty so we left.

"It's something very special to us".

He missed a 90th minute penalty which would have been his first leg goal of the season. "Nobody sees us already in the semi-final".

"The final decision will be made tomorrow". He's trained in the last three sessions and there's been greater intensity in each one. "If we play our game, I'm certain that we will be able to advance". If the police come and rush in you're going to run out and make it look bad.

"We have to get on with it". The referee made his decision, although it's there for everyone to see it's the wrong one. "I think everyone is very much up for the fight". He has to get that one right, he can't guess on those things. After all, they went to the Bernabeu last weekend and held Real Madrid to a draw.

Atletico lost last year's Champions League final in a penalty shootout against Madrid. They will hardly be quaking in their boots.

"We have a few on yellows, so we knew it was a tightrope".

Christian Fuchs hurled the ball in for Robert Huth's opener at Selhurst Park and, while he may move to centre back as an emergency option on Tuesday, there are plans for a similar set-up against Atletico.

"We controlled and dominated them at all times". "We have such a great team spirit we don't let it affect us".

"We're here for the first time in the club's history", he said. "I'm fired up and I'm looking forward to it".
