SHOWS: MADRID, SPAIN (APRIL 12, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LEICESTER CITY COACH CRAIG SHAKESPEARE SAYING: "We know it's still going to be a very difficult return match. We have a very good home record at the King Power. Our fans enjoy these Champions League nights. Of course we need to create more chances, we have to make sure that we attack probably a bit more than we did tonight, but as I said we're aware of what we have got to do in the second leg." STORY: Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare said his side need to create more chances to overturn a one-goal deficit in the return leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid. The result left the tie in the balance ahead of the second leg in England on April 18, as Leicester bid to maintain a fairytale run in their first season in Europe's elite club competition. Leicester's Craig Shakespeare said he was disappointed due to the referees calls but said they are still alive and are looking forward for the second leg at the King Power stadium. Atletico dominated from the start while Leicester stayed tight at the back and although Atletico dominated possession, they could not create much clear-cut chances. As Atletico pushed in vain for a second goal, Leicester's hopes of overturning the deficit in the second leg were hit when Robert Huth was booked for a foul on Griezmann, ruling the defender out of the return encounter.
