Atletico Madrid coach Simeone calm after Elche Copa draw

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone refuses to panic after another disappointing result on Wednesday night.

Atletico were held 1-1 by Elche in their Copa del Rey first-leg tie.

Simeone said "I'm leaving with good sensations, the performance was very good in the first half, we had a good dynamic, created goal situations, Elche went well in the second half and we still had the chances to take the match.

"It's an open tie."

Simeone added: "We knew that Elche had a good game, physical strikers ... We had chances to win but we were not in front of the goal. When a team has chance ... we have been able to win."
