Atletico Madrid ‘Needed More Luck’ During 1-1 Barcelona Draw – Diego Simeone

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone claimed his side needed a bit of luck after his side drew 1-1 with Barcelona.

It looked as though both sides would settle for a goalless draw, but in the 77th minute, Atletico Madrid went in front.

Speaking to the club’s official website after the game, Simeone admitted it was a very tough game and that in the end, his side needed a bit more luck to win the game. He said: “It was a tough, tactical game in which neither team had many chances to score.

“We had one in a play between Griezmann and Costa in the second half, but the truth is that there weren’t counter-attacks to take advantage of the spaces or possession to hurt us in small spaces. It was a game of details.

“Details matter in a game between two big teams. We took the lead and in the end, we needed a bit more luck for that ball not to go between Oblak and Lucas’ legs.”
