Atletico managed to impose a 2-2 draw at Barcelona at Camp Nou, in the 33rd round of the Spanish League.
“It was a fun match,” Simeone said after the match. “We have depended on our speed from the start. The opportunities were there for them and us.”
He praised Yannick Carrasco, who gets the team’s two penalties: “Carrasco has participated since the Bilbao match, he is better and more decisive, he plays directly, he recovers his best copy before he left.”
Asked whether Diego Costa was unlucky by scoring his own goal and wasting a penalty, Simeone replied, “I’m also unlucky.”
“The team is improving a lot, and our focus is now on the Mallorca match,” Chollo continued.
When asked about the third place finish, he stressed: “Our goal is to be in the golden box only.”
Antoine Griezmann, a former Atletico player, entered the substitute in the 90th minute, and he missed the participation as a primary for the third time in the last 4 games.
Simeone, when asked about the status of his former player, answered briefly: “No comment.”
Diego Costa and Lionel Messi scored Barcelonas two goals. While Saul Negis scored the goals of Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona would be satisfied with raising its score to 70 points in second place, behind Real Madrid, who scored 71 points, and the least match.
The difference with Real Madrid could deepen to 4 points if Al-Meringi succeeded in beating his neighbor Getafe on Thursday evening.
With Atletico Madrid raised its score to 59 points in third place, two points behind Seville fourth.
Diego Simeone’s knot continued, as Barcelona were not beaten in the League for match 16.
But in contrast, Saul’s magic wand worked as efficiently as all the previous appointments.
Saul when he scores, his team does not lose, 39 games he scored, and his team never lost in what is like a spell.
Meanwhile, Atleticos victory over Barcelona at Camp Nou was postponed, a victory that has been absent since the 2005/2006 season.
But Atletico continued the unbeatable series and raised it to 13 games in a row, while Barcelona also maintained a record of unbeaten at home in the league this season..
Leo Messi finally scored his 700th career goal after trying for several games, but he will not celebrate the perfect image after his team faltered..
