Diego Simeone was harping on Atletico Madrid ‘s victorious trip against Real Valladolid Saturday. Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone hailed the late victory of Real Valladolid over his team as they helped their chances of completing in LaLiga’s top four. Vitolo came off the seat and returned home to the 81st-minute champ at Atletico in a 1-0 victory at home in Valladolid on Saturday.
Atletico moved back to third in the standings in the Champions League qualifying race – points level with Seville through 30 games and four clear of Getafe.
Simeone said, “It’s always important to take something from a game and shockingly better when you win. There were things to improve, yet we’ve had three months without a normal preparation and then you’re playing at regular intervals. Because of the circumstances, there’s a need to adapt and rehash yourself. That was an important success. In the principal half, we had chances and were unable to score, at that point in the subsequent half, it was tough against an extremely organized side. We could have won or lost, yet we achieved a great outcome.”
Atletico played at the Wanda Metropolitano behind closed doors because of the coronavirus pandemic and Simeone added: “The fans were not in the tissue yet the soul they were there. The moment of quiet before the match was unadulterated inclination and the music in the vacant stadium. We lost many individuals.”
Vitolo, whose Atletico eliminated champions Liverpool on the way to the Champions League quarter-finals this season, said: “The club ‘s goal is to qualify for the Champions League next season. Many teams attempting and it will be chosen in the last matches. Ideally, we can enter and give the delight of the fans.”
