Filipe Luis sees similarities between Atletico Madrid and Leicester

Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis has drawn parallels between the La Liga club and Leicester City.

Luis believes that both teams don't depend on superstars and have managed to achieve success because of their work ethic and team spirit.

"Look at what is happening this year with Leicester, they are a modest team and are almost champions in the Premier League," said former Chelsea defender Luis who is preparing for Atletico's Champions League semi-final with German giants Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

"Epic things happen in football. Although there's a difference in our budgets we are the team that plays most as a team."

"We don't have a megastar, we have a team where everyone runs, everyone fights for the player next to them, and that makes us stronger," he said

"The team thinks a lot collectively, nobody thinks individually, that's the most positive things that we have.

"We've had a lot of bad and good moments in the season and now we are stable, we have players who are getting better and better."
