Leicester have played Atletico before.

The clubs first met in 1961 when Atletico knocked Leicester out of the European Cup Winners’ Cup first round, winning 2-0 in Spain after drawing 1-1 in England.

It was the 1997 UEFA Cup that saw the clubs meet again. This time Atletico won both legs, 2-1 at home and 2-0 away.
