Highlights: Leicester sink Sevilla

  • Two of Leicester’s three previous European campaigns were ended by Atlético
  • Atlético have never lost at home to English opposition (W5 D5)
  • Leicester knocked out Sevilla, the side currently one place above Atleti in the Liga, in the round of 16
  • Atlético have won 28 of their last 34 European matches at the Vicente Calderón

Craig Shakespeare, Leicester manager
Facing a team who have reached the final in two of the last three seasons is a massive challenge, but it’s just the kind of tie you expect in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. It will be a brilliant occasion for our supporters and for everyone at the club.

Clemente Villaverde, Atlético general manager
The previous knockout round and the group stage have shown that Leicester are a side you have to be wary of. Leicester are here because they deserve to be, and in the last 16 they eliminated Sevilla. We will need to take any chances that come our way.
