There’s some good news for Leicester City ahead of Wednesday’s clash against Atlético Madrid.
Missing last weekend during the Madrid derby, Kevin Gameiro is once again set to watch his teammates from the stands when they take on the Premier League champions at the Calderón as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
The France international has been left out by Diego Simeone for the important Champions League clash, meaning the Spanish side are now likely to field a striker pair of Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres to face Craig Shakespeare’s men.
This will be the fourth consecutive game the former Paris Saint-Germain striker has missed, and considering he has scored 14 goals in all competitions this season, which is seven more than Torres, he will be a big miss.
With seven assists on top of that, the Leicester defence will be grateful the 29-year-old won’t be facing them on Wednesday night, as Yohan Benalouane and Robert Huth look set to line up at the heart of the Foxes’ defence for the fifth game in a row.
