The Atletico coach warns that the Russian team "plays nice football"

Simeone: "We know the potential of the Rubin"

Diego Pablo Simeone is very familiar with rival tomorrow in the Vicente Calderon. The technician does not miss any details about the rivals and proof of that is that Atletico have not lost a knockout game since the Argentine joined the bench. "We have seen videos. They play very well, they try to play the ball around. Widemen like Ansaldi can can play in different positions. Top with people like Rondon, Eremenko or whoever the coach picks, who will make it a very difficult game tomorrow," said the coach.

Simeone is not worried about the latest results of his team. His team is still ambitious and that brings you to success. "Competing in League, Cup and UEFA Europa League, makes it a very long season. Normally you try to play the same way everywhere though it is true that ultimately it’s more difficult away from home. That does not mean that our ambition is not the same when we play at home or away," he told the media.

In February games are coming in all three competitions, Simeone will use all his players to try to keep everyone fresh. "Physically the team is responding well. I repeat the game away cost us more but we are in very good condition physically. From now on we will face a lot of game and i hope to have everyone available and physically well. Hopefully we can have some rotation to remain as competitive as we have been since the championship started in all three competitions," said the Argentine.
