Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, has said they will have a lot of work to do ahead of their second leg clash with Chelsea in the Champions League.

The LaLiga side lost 1-0 to Thomas Tuchel’s side on Tuesday night.

Olivier Giroud scored the only goal of the match in the second half.

As a result, Simeone’s side will have it all to do at Stamford Bridge in three weeks, as they seek to qualify for the quarter-final.

“Looking three weeks ahead is too far. We have a lot of games until then. We will be playing against an opponent with speed and will need to be able to stop it, to deal with forwards like Giroud and other powerful players.

“We need to have more of the ball and position ourselves better in attack. We’ll work on it, but we also have an important game against Villarreal.

“Work, work, work. I trust the team we have. If we were in the month of September and they told me we’ve lost but we’re still leading, I’d sign for it,” Simeone said.

Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea, Champions League: We didn’t let Atletico Madrid breathe – Tuchel, Premium News24

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said his side didn’t allow Atletico Madrid “breathe” as they won 1-0 in their Champions League last 16 on Tuesday night.

Olivier Giroud’s stunning overhead kick in the second half proved to be the winner, as the Blues claimed a huge advantage ahead of the second leg.

Tuchel admitted he prepared his team to face a defensive Atletico side.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: “We knew it [Atletico packing their defence] could happen. We told the guys if it happens maybe it’s our quality and the respect. We wanted to be brave and play in their half.

“We knew they were ready to suffer with eight people in the box. The intention was to keep the intensity high. This is what we did very good. We never let them breathe or come out for counterattacks. We have a big reward with this result.

“This is one of the toughest challenges to open a defence like Atletico.”
