UCL Simeone reveals why Atletico lost 1-0 to Man City

Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone has bemoaned his team’s failure to play the way they planned in the first half of their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night.

The LaLiga side defended for most of their Champions League quarter-final first leg at the Etihad and failed to create chances.

Simeone hailed City’s quality and said the first-half display was largely due to Atletico’s opponents, rather than his tactics.

We didn’t play the way we wanted in the first half, we couldn’t break out.

It was a bit better after the break, but City are the best team in the world. They have scored so many goals at home in the recent past.

But this is half-time and let’s see how the second game goes in Madrid,” Simeone said.
