Atletico Madrid’s

2-0 victory over

Rayo Vallecano

on Sunday, their manager

Diego Simeone

has talked about the game, insisting that it was a very important game for them, and he couldn’t be happier.

Angel Correa

was the hero for the reigning champions of La Liga, scoring both of their goals after a run of four straight defeats closing them to the leaders as Real Madrid was defeated on the same day.

 "Winning was tremendously important, and the players showed it by how they faced the game,"

he said


"I like what I've seen. [It was] a great match individually and collectively.

"You saw a serious, tough, strong team that knew what it needed. When there were spaces, we ran; when it was time to close, we did. It was important.

"The reality is the results and in the previous matches, we did good things, but the mistakes hit us more than we deserved.

"We are working to find regularity in the defensive aspect, which is always important. The collective work has been very good and against a team that was fit, which we had to pass in the table."

Despite their victory, they are mostly focused on Copa del Rey right now as they face Rayo Majadahonda on Thursday.
