An 1-0 first leg win is anything but guaranteeing Atletico Madrid a ticket to the UEFA Champions League semifinals, and Diego Simeone was the first to acknowledge that in the Press conference before tonight’s return leg at the King Power Stadium, especially given that the Spanish side are facing a team which, according to the Argentine coach, have a lot in common with his own.
Leicester depend on the details, as we also depend on the details
the Atletico Madrid boss started saying, before expanding on what he meant by ‘details’.
It’s a well worked and defensively balanced team and we are also similar like that. So it’s an evenly matched and complex qualifier
Simeone told reporters, before answering questions about Atleti’s strongest point.
The best thing that this team has been doing in the last years is competing. Competing in every competition they play makes them different and it’s an important point that this group has.
During the Press conference the Argentine coach also mentioned that his team’s target in the return leg is to score at least once, something that would put Leicester City in an awfully difficult position, having to score at least three goals themselves.
