Atletico Madrid coach Simeone delighted with Barcelona stalemate

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone was delighted with their 0-0 draw at Barcelona.

The result sees El Cholo's side hold on to their place at the top of LaLiga Santander's table, with Barcelona and Real Madrid trailing behind.

"It's been a fantastic season," Simeone said post-match.

"There are four teams looking to finish as high as possible.

"We came to Barcelona to play a game full of teamwork and it went as we'd expected. We sustained attacks after winning the ball back, with a great first half and a little more even second half.

"They had a great headed chance at the end and we had [Yannick] Carrasco's opportunity, which, if [the ball] had been played earlier, we would've been in on goal.

"I leave here [feeling good] about the team's effort. We're not straying from the game to game.

"We're calm now, will rest tomorrow and prepare the game against Real [Sociedad] on Monday.

"It will always be like this, game by game."
