Video: Saúl Ñíguez’s Bullet Header Breaks Leicester City Hearts

Leicester City saw their Champions League hopes crushed to smithereens against Atletico Madrid this evening, with midfielder Saúl Ñíguez providing the heartbreaking blow.

The two sides met this evening at the Foxes’ King Power Stadium for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final, with Atletico 1-0 up from their first encounter last week.

Leicester knew they obviously had to score to level things up, but conceding an away goal was simply out of the question – but that’s exactly what happened just before the half-hour mark.

He’s synonymous with classy passing and linking midfield with attack, but Ñíguez’s header tonight left his opponents helplessly looking on:

But it now seems their European adventure will come to a halt, thanks to Saul’s bullet header and Atletico’s incredible ability to keep a clean sheet.
