Champions League: Gameiro trains on eve of Leicester clash

Kevin Gameiro is in line to return for Atletico Madrid's Champions League quarter-final second leg at Leicester City on Tuesday after taking part in training on Monday.

Gameiro, 29, has missed Atletico's last five games due to a groin problem, with Fernando Torres deputising alongside Antoine Griezmann.

But he trained with the rest of the squad on a sunny but cool evening at the King Power Stadium.

The France international and his team-mates limbered up with a volleyed passing game before taking part in stretching exercises in the part of the training session open to the media.

Atletico, beaten finalists in 2014 and 2016, are 1-0 up on aggregate after Griezmann's penalty gave them a narrow victory in last week's first leg.
