Atletico Madrid have won their first leg quarter-final tie against visiting Leicester City 1-nil in the UEFA Champions League. 

Diego Simeone's side, who are after their third final appearance in four seasons, were awarded a penalty in the 28th minute after Antoine Griezmann was brought down in the box by Albrighton.

Greezman himself stepped up and sent the keeper the wrong way to put the hosts in the lead. The score remained that way for the rest of the match and Atletico won with the single goal.
