The Foxes were last night defeated 1-0 by Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
The Foxes were up against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish capital in the first leg of the tie when violence erupted in Madrid's Plaza Mayor.
Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare insisted he was satisfied with a point despite watching his team squander a two-goal lead when they drew 2-2 at Crystal Palace.
"We knew that to open their defence, long shots were an option so we tried to pull it off".
"Then, hopefully, you come out the other end by getting your team to play the best they possibly can".
"When he got the job after Claudio Ranieri left I rang him and welcomed him to the mad house of management", said Allardyce.
"Leicester thought they had a tough night in Spain".
Keane also added that Diego Simeone's side will be the one's to finish off Leicester's Champions League campaign.More news: PM gets rousing welcome during Odisha roadshow
They will also have to overturn a deficit at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday without Robert Huth, who is suspended after collecting his third booking of the campaign.
Ateltico's dominance in the opening stages meant that Leicester were living exclusively on the counter attack, much like they were in the first leg against Sevilla, but when Leicester did throw a few numbers forward, it left spaces for Atletico to spring counter attacks as well.
It was a bitter defeat for the English champions as the spot-kick was awarded for a Marc Albrighton tackle on Griezmann that took place outside the penalty area.
Atletico will be quietly confident, sitting in there and hitting Leicester on the counter attack.
Palace were high on confidence heading into Saturday's encounter after winning five out of their last six games, including victories over Chelsea and the 3-0 home triumph against Arsenal last time out. It has proved costly tonight but we have to make sure we don't dwell on it and we move on. "They bet everything on the second leg". "It was definitely a foul, but it was outside the box".
"We were always on the tightrope with people like Robert because he's a very competitive centre-half".
Leicester struggled from the start and never threatened Atletico at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, finishing the game with no attempts on target.
"We have a very good home record at the King Power, our fans enjoy these Champions League nights".
