Ndidi Could Miss Tonight's Champions League Semifinal
Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi is doubtful to face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinal, second leg on Tuesday night, according to the official website of UEFA.
The central midfielder will need to undergo a late fitness test before stepping out onto the King Power Stadium turf.
With defenders Robert Huth suspended and captain Wes Morgan injured, manager Craig Shakespeare will be hoping Ndidi plays through the pain barrier as he has a special job for him tonight, which is the man-to-man marking of France star Griezmann.
The former Racing Genk sensation will miss the semifinal clash if he picks up another booking today, having been yellow carded against Sevilla on March 14.
In 50 outings this season, Ndidi has found the net five times, including two long-range stunners against Stoke City and Derby County.
