The fairytale - if it can be called that, given the latest odyssey began with drunken eejits trashing Madrid roaring ownership of Gibraltar - survives. Leicester City were outplayed and largely outclassed at the Calderon for long periods of their first leg tie tonight. While the goal itself was mired in controversy, Leicester will be glad to escape Spain at only a goal down.
It could have been more: Atleti owned the ball, and Koke rattled a crossbar early on.
Atleti's best chance from open play came in the second half, through Fernando Torres. Such has been the weird nature of Torres career: the sensational rise followed by the confidence-shorn fall, we're not quite sure which part was vintage Torres: the first part, in which he ghosted past the Leicester defence and gave Robert Huth the slip, or the latter part, in which he slipped himself in comical circumstances.
