Leicester, April 17 :English football champions Leicester City trained on Monday for the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals against Atletico Madrid at the King Power stadium, as central defender Wes Morgan as well as Yohan Benalouane attended the training session after recovering from injuries.

However, Leicester coach Craig Shakespeare will be dealing with problems in the midfield and in attack with the absence of Nampalys Mendy and Islam Slimani, reports Efe.

Although Morgan missed the last six games with his teammates due to back pain, he showed up for Monday's training session.

Yohan Benalouane, who could not finish Saturday's Premier League game against Crystal Palace, also made it to the training field.

The first leg at Madrid ended in a 0-1 defeat for the Foxes. This is perhaps a reminder that they are on the verge of writing history if they manage to make a comeback and qualify for the semi-finals. 

Last season, they wrote the first chapter of their outstanding story by winning the English Premier League (EPL) for the first time in the club's history.
