Simeone must beat Barcelona for the first time at the Nou Camp to win his second La Liga title.
boss Diego Simeone has expressed hope that he can beat Barcelona for the first time at the Nou Camp.
La Liga has arrived to its final stage and the competition has reached the peak of excitement. Atletico Madrid currently lead with 76 points, followed by Real Madrid and Barcelona with 74 points. Atletico and Barca will face each other at the Camp Nou tomorrow, and the outcome of this match will largely determine the La Liga champion. The victory of either team could increase their chances of winning the trophy, and on the other hand, Real Madrid, who have to face Sevilla, have eliminated from the Champions League, focusing on success in La Liga.
Now the Argentine coach has expressed hope that he can achieve his first victory at the Camp Nou in this important match.
“We’re facing a team that’s cut many points, and a coach who’s done a great job to turn around what happened at the beginning of the season,”
Simeone said pre-match in comments carried byMarca
“There’s always a first time for everything in life."
Asked about Llorente and Luis Suarez, Atletico's two key players, Simeone said:
“Their season speaks for itself,”
“Two very important players. One with a great history, claiming everything that wasn’t expected of him. And Marcos having the best campaign of his career.”
