Diego Simeone: 'Atletico Madrid must be more alert away from home'

Simeone demands more alert Atletico to solve away day problems

"We're fighting with Barcelona (for the Spanish title), we have the chance of reaching the Europa League final, good things have happened every year", Simeone added.

Second-placed Atletico were outplayed by the Basques from start to finish and fell behind in the 27th minute to a thumping strike off the post from forward Willian Jose after a cut-back from former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj.

Los Colchoneros went into the game knowing that a victory would strengthen their grip on second place after Real Madrid could only draw 1-1 to Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday evening.

Atletico have now failed to win any of their last four games away from the Wanda Metropolitano, but Simeone believes those performances have been better than what the results suggest.


Their poor league form means Barcelona can win La Liga on April 29 if they beat Deportivo, regardless of whether Atletico win against Real Betis this Sunday.

After the game, Simeone said: 'We have to take a good look at our away form and be more alert and attentive because we are letting ourselves down on the road.

Sime Vrsaljko came close to an equaliser with 23 minutes remaining, but Juanmi's strike 10 minutes from time after a flawless backheel from Jose and his stoppage-time header saw La Real home.

"I hope we can make him see that this team will keep growing, the greatest thing for a player is to see that things are growing, and it's real, not just words".
