Atletico Madrid are at the top of the table.
And it looks like it is going to be their year after all. They are playing good football, having a good time in defence and Simeone seems determined to win his second league title with Atletico.
Simeone in particular was full of praise for one veteran who has been firing on all cylinders this season – Luis Suarez.
“After their penalty, they felt safer. Then we improved a bit and Suárez’s goal appeared,” Simeone said in his post-match press conference.
“It allowed us to go into half-time tied. In the second half, there was more of the same, a complex game, without many chances.
“We made a change so we could see how the game was developing, to see if Saúl could give us more play with Torreira.
“Little happened because there was not much attack but when they combined on the left we could do damage.
“Suárez is one of the best players in LaLiga, he was always playing intensely in the game. He found the goal from a loose ball and then the penalty was generated and manufactured.
“It’s why he’s one of the best.”
