Interviewed after the match by Sky, the coach of Atletico Madrid has analyzed the performance of his team in the confrontation against Juventus. A close win:
“In the first time the game was very blocked. Juve is very strong, it’s hard to find holes where you can hurt it. Were needed details, we have made the change of the module at the right time. Olympiakos? Juventus is very strong, just needs to recover Vidal. I believe they are the favorites for winning the group. ”
Also in an interview for Mediaset after the game Simeone gave more details about he managed to win:
“Today we played against a great team, it will be tough even against Malmoe.”
“I think we played with two smart ways at the tactical level, they are very strong, have a strong three line behind and is not easy to play against them, we knew we could put them in difficulty with the cross, we played with the launches to skip the midfield in the first half, there were no occasions and then in the second half we improved, I think in the second half the game was more open, with Griezmann we knew that the game was opening, and it went well, we hit first because their are very strong.
I think it will be a tough group, winning away from home will not be easy. We must think of La Liga which is played in a little while. “
