Diego Pablo Simeone appeared in press conference after the first leg match of the King’s Cup last 16. The Argentinian coach analysed the red and white victory by 0-2: "We started with an important and constant pressure that made us be closer to scoring throughout the first half. The second half was more of the same. We had more gaps to be able to counterattack. The team played an important game as to the intensity and team-play. We take with us a good result.”
Regarding the advantage for the second leg match, he assured: "In the King’s Cup, you can never relax. It’s a complicated tournament and we need to pay great attention in the duel at the Vicente Calderón."
