Atletico manager Diego Simeone believes their situation in the Champions League group is complicated as they remain third in the group.

The Spanish side played goalless draw against Club Brugge last night has their hope for qualification is not certain.

Atletico Madrid are in a difficult situation and a win against Porto and Bayern Leverkusen could give them the chance of qualification.

Speaking about the game and their Champions League fate Simeone said: “It got complicated and we are in a place where the only good thing is that we have a result. Win both games. We have to win, it’s the only good thing.

“We had important situations, we played one of the best games this season, because of the pace, because of the rival, because we didn’t go crazy… There are many good things.

“The goal didn’t come… Morata’s is the one that It remains for all of us and not even the goalkeeper expected it, but the goalkeepers are here to stop. We did everything very well, I keep a lot of good things”.

Speaking about his team the manager said: “I’m an optimist and I’m always looking to look at the parts that the team has. Cunha is very good, Morata looked for the goal, Rodrigo joined the team again, Axel entered with personality, Carrasco on the right was more electric…

“All those who started the match generated what I like to see, a team that he does not consider a ball lost, defending, saving the goalkeeper many plays… Words are nice, but what counts is reality.

“Griezmann spent a lot of time in the middle and gave us a lot there, but he is a striker”, Simeone added. “Better than none. He has quality and game and it generates that he can be accompanied by many footballers always maintaining the level.

“With the others we can also play among them in games like Celta for example. He cares a lot about the moment. I cling to what I can perceive of what each one has at the time of the games”.
