Atletico are three points behind second-placed. "We have a good cushion of points and the next game is another final to be won. The dressing room looks game by game and as for the final league position, we will see where we are".

The player spoke of the level of the first division. "The passage of youth to first division has been great and it shows. We're trying to build my body to compete at the highest level. I think they are leading me down the right path and the steps I have to take are preparing me well."

After receiving the news of the defeat of Atletico B, Oliver said. "It's a shame. We had the playoff positions near and this defeat takes us away a bit from the fight. There are still many games left and we will fight to the end".

Despite the draw Oliver left the Coliseum Alfonso Perez pleased. "I've always been happy at Atletico Madrid every day. Every day I'm on the training pitch at Cerro and people give me love and that's what I need."
