Leicester lost the first-leg game 1-0 and hosts the return on Tuesday.
It was the France international's more obvious quality that earned Atletico the opener as his searing pace spread panic in the Leicester defence and Albrighton bundled him over.
Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare rued poor decision-making by the referee after his team was defeated by Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final here.
Manchester United legend Roy Keane talking on ITV's Champions League Show said: "I think Atletico will be happy to take them back them back to the King Power".
The talk from the manager and some of the players is that they're delighted to bring them back to the King Power - Atletico went to the Bernabeu last week and drew so I don't think they'll shaking in their boots going to the King Power. "We have a few on yellows, so we knew it was a tightrope". It was just a horrendous penalty decision that has cost them the game.
"Koke sent one onto the post, but in the end our goal came from a penalty".
"We know it is bound to be a very hard return match, but we have a very good record at King Power Stadium", Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said.
Robert Huth - who will be banned for the second leg after being booked - saw a shot blocked and Shinji Okazaki narrowly failed to make contact with a low cross in the best of Leicester's rare raids forward.
The 33-year-old Jamaica global is doubtful for the second leg as well and with Huth also forced to sit out, Leicester are expected to face a tough time when Atletico visit the King Power Stadium for the second leg next week. "We are aware of that but we are still in this tie". Leicester has a ideal home record in its debut campaign in the Champions League, with four victories and only one goal conceded. "We knew we were walking a tight rope". He said, "It is clear we would have preferred a bigger scoreline".
'I hope we can play the same game against Sevilla.
