Diego Pablo Simeone appeared at the press conference prior to Wednesday’s fixture. The Argentinian coach spoke about the condition of the team: "It’s going through a good moment. We have won two matches and tied against Villarreal. It’s a time of complicated matches, especially because of the different teams we’re playing against. All have different characteristics. Tomorrow we play against a very offensive team with a great group work. It’s good at set pieces, people with good finishing skills, collective game. We feel hopeful and strong to play the Champions League.

Atlético’s coach stressed the good moment of Guardado: "We always try to observe the match and the characteristics of the rival. Guardado is at a very important moment because of his experience. He makes very good diagonals from the wings inwards and we must pay close attention."  

In addition, the red and white coach said: "Augusto is recovering very well. He’s done 3 workouts and has just been inactive for 20 days, which is not that long. We'll see what happens today, but he’s fit to play."
