Diego Costa will stay with the club in Hotel and can get a few minutes on Tuesday evening.
This Liverpool will go down into the history
Diego Simeone said that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool would go down into history. The Argentinian coach believes that Liverpool’s statistics and numbers are incredible and almost impossible to repeat. Atletico’s coach believes that Liverpool wants to win the Champions League second time in a row, and it would be a big battle.
Coach asked Madrid players to be focused on the match for 90 minutes. Liverpool may get one chance and eliminate from the Champions League with that chance.
Who has a better chance to win the Champions League?
Diego Simeone said that both teams have relevant and equal chances to win the tie. It would be interesting to see a match at both stadiums because there are two legs. Diego believes that in two-leg games, teams have 50% chances to succeed in the next round of the tournament. When there is only one match, then everything could happen.
Journalists asked him about Liverpool strategy and if Diego was thinking about this game since December. Simeone said that Atletico Madrid is focused on each match, and players were not thinking about Liverpool at all. Atletico Madrid players focused on Liverpool’s clash after they have finished the game in Valencia.
