Leicester were without captain Wes Morgan due to a back injury and his return to health will be even more important for the second leg as Robert Huth will be suspended after being booked for chopping down Griezmann.
The visitors also had sports scientist Tom Joel sent to the stands for handing out an energy sachet to Albrighton infront of the home dug-out amid stormy scenes.
Allardyce's England reign lasted just 67 days when he left in September having been caught up in an undercover newspaper sting, with Shakespeare spending 10 days as first-team coach with the Three Lions. It was provoked but it did get a bit tasty so we left. We can't worry about the opposition's bench - we'll let the officials take care of that. We have to be mindful, be smart and keep our own house in order. We have to be aware of all those things. We'll get it looked at.
Palace struck back impressively and were back in the game inside two minutes.
"There are different ways and come the game we'll find out if we've found a solution".
Wes Morgan as back in training on Easter Monday is a fitness boost to Craig Shakespeare. I have seen enough throughout the squad.
Craig Shakespeare understandably had one eye on Tuesday's meeting with the La Liga side but the Leicester manager resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes to the team that suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat in the first leg in Spain.
Leicester City bosses are working with Uefa and the Spanish authorities to discover the "full facts" behind scuffles involving fans in Madrid. I said before the draw that the dark horse I liked was Juve, with a blend of experience at the back and energy going forward.
"We have to get on with it". The referee made his decision - although it's there for everyone to see it's the wrong one. "All I am concentrating on is making sure I stay focused and the players stay focused, and try to win every game we are in".
Griezmann converted the spot kick for the only goal of the game, but Albrighton says the foul took place outside the box. "I think it is a disappointing moment, a key moment", Shakespeare was quoted as saying by the Guardian on Thursday. I try to get the balance right but some things can not be manufactured, some have to be there and then.
Manager Craig Shakespeare, who replaced the sacked Claudio Ranieri in February, made a tactical change to ensure the Atletico forward became nearly ineffective.
It may not be pretty and it might not be the result most of us want, but pragmatism tells us that Atletico Madrid should end Leicester's dream Champions League run on Tuesday night.
Social media videos showed a blue smoke bomb let off in the square, with English fans claiming police used tear gas and rubber bullets against them.
