Atletico Madrid coach Simeone eager to cool expectations

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is eager to play down expectations ahead of tonight's clash with Granada.

Simeone has warned against expecting his side to produce a similar performance to last weekend's 5-0 thrashing of Real Betis when they face Granada.

"It's not easy to keep playing with the intensity in which we have kept playing. The players are trying to recover in the best way possible against a team that will play with hope and enthusiasm," he said.
