Atletico spirit guides Leicester in next season's Champions League 2

The fiery playing style of Simeone's team is the inspiration for the new Premier League king to have confidence when he first steps onto the Champions League playing field next season.

The fairy tale about little Leicester just came to a perfect end with the Premier League throne yesterday when they officially became champions.

Leicester, obviously, is difficult to compete with Atletico.

Simeone (left) and Ranieri are both influenced by the classic defensive tactics of Italian football.

They are both teams whose forte is counter-attacking defense.

If Guardiola needs to find a challenger to control the ball through passes in the Premier League next season after returning to lead Man City, Leicester is probably the most worthy choice.

Leicester and Atletico are two teams that bring together fates that once drifted to many places before finding a purpose to burn out.

Leicester is not afraid to test their endurance against any opponent in the Premier League.

Above all, Leicester and Atletico Madrid are both ready to drag their opponents into a crazy war in which they are bloodthirsty hunters.

Guardiola probably thought that Bayern’s 1-0 loss to Atletico was more a failure of will than of tactics.

Arturo Vidal’s image in Madrid symbolizes the helplessness of the team he plays for.

The next two times Vidal received the ball, he had plenty of space.

Vidal’s image (in black shirt) at the Vicente Calderon symbolizes the decline of Bayern.

In other words, even if Atletico is not technically or tactically superior to their opponents, they can still win thanks to their desire, mental strength and toughness in their playing style.

In next year’s Champions League, regardless of how the bookies will arrange the odds for Leicester, one thing will be certain – mental strength is the key to success for them in their first foray into the Champions League.
