Leicester have captain Wes Morgan back in the team after six games out injured, as they try to upset Atletico Madrid in tonight's Champions League quarter-final second leg.

They head into the home leg of their quarter-final 1-0 down.

Earlier this week, Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare had said that the Jamaican would be a '50-50' chance of making the game, but performed 'positively' in training ahead of tonight's match.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are without injured Wales forward Gareth Bale in the Champions League tonight.

They're looking to defend a 2-1 lead at home to Bayern Munich, in the second leg of their quarter-final tie.

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti's in charge of the German side.

He says Bayern played well in the opening game, but it'll take something special to go through.

"For 60 minutes, the game was good and we had control," he said this week. "But we have to be able to do it for 90 minutes and avoid mistakes. 

"To try and win here, we have to have the perfect game."
