Wednesday evening, Atletico Madrid played FK Rostov on away and won 0-1. A goal an hour into the match secured Atletico Madrid a slim victory.
-It was a tough match, but we knew what they stood for. We had the chances to secure the victory, but we did not succeed, and that made us nervous, Simeone said according to football-espana.net.
-Rostov defended with eight players and closed every space around their box rather well. It is not easy to breakthrough and create chances against such a closed off defence, he continued.
