Super Eagles star, Ahmed Musa has been omitted from the Champions League quarter-final first leg tie between Atletico Madrid and Leicester City at the Vicente Calderon.

However, his compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi, will marshal the midfield of the EPL champions in a bid to shut out Antonio Griezmann and others from finding the back of the net of the Foxes.

Craig Shakespeare made five changes from the side that was beaten by Everton, with Danny Simpson, Christian Fuchs, Riyad Mahrez, Wilfred Ndidi and Shinji Okazaki all coming into the side. Daniel Amartey, Ben Chilwell, Andy King, Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani are the men who make way.

Diego Simeone has named an unchanged side from that which started against Real Madrid, meaning Griezmann will have the opportunity to add to the four Champions League goals he’s scored already this season.

Leicester (4-4-2): Schmeichel (c), Simpson, Benalouane, Huth, Fuchs; Albrighton, Drinkwater, Ndidi, Mahrez; Okazaki, Vardy

SUBS: Chilwell, King, Amartey, Slimani, Zieler, Gray, Ulloa

Atletico (4-4-2): Oblak; Juanfran, Savic, Godin, Filipe Luis; Carrasco, Gabi, Koke, Saul; Torres, Griezmann

Subs: Moreira, Lucas, Gimenez, Thomas, Cerci, Gaitan, Correa
