Atletico Madrid pip Ndidi, Musa’s Leicester City in Champions League


Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi lasted the entire duration of Leicester City’s​ slim 0-1 loss to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon.

The match was a cagey affair with Leicester defending deep in a resilient manner that saw last season’s English Champions concede only a single goal via the penalty spot which was dispatched by French forward Antoine Greizman in the 27th minute of the first half.

Ndidi and his Leicester teammates will hope to finish off the job when they welcome Atletico to England for the return leg with a spot in the semi finals up for grabs.
