Atlético de Madrid tied this Sunday against Betis 1-1 on matchday 30 of The league. Now, the ‘Colchonero’ team is the absolute leader of the Spanish tournament with 67 units, one more than Real Madrid and two more than Barcelona. Despite this irregular moment of his team, the coach Diego Simeone expressed tranquility before the press: “I am not lying and I do not like lies. I’m going game by game and I’m not going to change. I love this moment”.
Argentine Simeone’s team began by winning their match against Betis with a goal from Belgian Yannick Carrasco after 5 minutes of play, but in minute 20 it was tied by Spanish Cristian Tello. This tie puts them as leaders of LaLiga but with their pursuers very close. This is due to a questionable present from Atlético and an improvement from both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Precisely the ‘Merengue’ team defeated their classic Barcelona 2-1 on Saturday and is on the heels of Atlético. When asked by the press about whether his team is able to endure the eight dates that are missing, the ‘Cholo’ responded with a striking statement: “I am not lying and I do not like lies. I’m going game by game and I’m not going to change. I love this moment, it is a moment of resistance. Now we are in a beautiful place that we must sustain ”.
For his part, the Argentine coach agreed with the presentation of his team and lamented the lack of a goal from his compatriot Ángel Correa: “Very happy with the work of my players, they are doing an enormous job, it gives me a lot of anger that Ángel cannot score a goal because he is always generating dangerous plays. He’s at a stage where he can’t get it, if he continues like this, the goal will come. Life is work and work and one day pays. Hopefully one day he will have what he deserves, the goal ”.
Finally, coach Simeone referred to the fight for the title and the moment that his team and his pursuers Real Madrid and Barcelona live: “LaLiga started with irregular Madrid and Barcelona, we drew twice before the break, then we kept a step firm and strong. Madrid and Barcelona began to recover, the other day they faced each other and Madrid continues with a firm step and we lowered a point of irregularity as they had at the beginning. We will see what happens, all the teams have a moment of irregularity and hopefully we have passed it after today’s draw ”.
