Atletico head coach Diego Simeone has summarized the Champions League 1/8 final match against Chelsea (0-1).
“The game was very hard work for both teams. Very few chances, but Chelsea took advantage of theirs, the game was very equal. We played well in defense, took advantage in the transition moments,” said Simeone to Marca after the game.
“We are moving on to the return leg, which will be tough, like all the games in the Champions League. We must keep our composure to survive the period that the team is going through.”
“We played against a fast team and we were able to contain their speed, but they also have Giroud and other powerful players. We need to possess the ball more often to be better positioned in the attack. We will work on that. We have an important game against Villarreal ahead. Work and work and work.”
