Top of the La Liga and a place in the knock-out stage of Champions League. Atletico Madrid is surely doing great.
Atletico Madrid needed only one point in the match against RB Salzburg to have a place in the knock-out stage of the Champions League. They should have only avoided a defeat and they were successful. They defeated Salzburg and with Bayern Munich went through the next stage.
Atletico Madrid is also on top of the La Liga with one point clear and two games in hand. They are considered a title contender this year considering their results so far.
“We knew it was going to be difficult, that it was going to cost us a lot,” Hermoso, the scorer of the first goal, said after the game in comments carried by Marca.
“We knew what we were playing for, how important it was for us, for the club and for all the people who support us. This victory is for them.
Hermoso said that no rival in the last 16 will be viewed as insurmountable. Atletico’s draw will be tough seeing as they finished second in their group.
“Logically, I think that few teams want to play against us,”
“We are a strong team with a large squad full of players able to come in and perform in every game. We’re the team that goes out to win every game and gives importance to all competitions, and I can assure you that we’ll be a complicated opponent.”
