Atletico boss Simeone expecting difficult task at Bayern Munich

Diego Simeone will prepare his Atletico Madrid side for a tricky encounter at Bayern Munich next week.

The Argentine guided his side to a narrow 1-0 victory over the German giants in the Champions League semi-final first leg at the Vicente Calderon on Wednesday night.

Saul Niguez's superb individual goal in the 11th minute was the difference between the two sides and Simeone is executing a similarly tight affair at the Allianz Arena on next Tuesday.

"It's an open tie," said the Atletico boss.

"Playing in Munich means they have their fans behind them and home advantage, but we have a chance to get an away goal.

"It will be a close game like today, and we'll see who makes the most of their chances."
