SHOWS: LEICESTER, ENGLAND, UK (APRIL 17, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) ATLETICO COACH DIEGO SIMEONE SAYS (ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL TRANSLATION): "I will repeat what I said in the pre-match press conference before the first leg, I think our characteristics, our traits, as two teams are very similar. We are not too different in the way we play. You know we both work hard. I think it will be a very very tight game and as Godin has just mentioned I think the first leg was a very tight result and I think tomorrow night will be no different. It will be decided on the smallest of details." STORY: Spanish heavyweights Atletico Madrid come to England expecting the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final with Leicester City to be decided by small details, Atletico coach Diego Simeone told reporters in Leicester on Monday (April 17). Leicester have to overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit and the prize is a place in the Champions League semi-finals. "I think our characteristics, our traits, as two teams are very similar," Atletico's charismatic manager Diego Simeone told reporters after a tough first encounter with the Midlands side. "I think the first leg was a very tight result and I think tomorrow night will be no different. It will be decided on the smallest of details." Atletico come to Tuesday's (April 18) tie having competed in two Champions League finals in the last three years, having made it to four successive quarter-finals. Leicester were outclassed for large parts of the first leg at a fervent Vicente Calderon Stadium but, crucially, return to the King Power Stadium with their storied opponents well in their sights after Antoine Griezmann's solitary goal.
