Atletico Madrid coach Simeone on Chelsea clash: We traveled 4 hours to play at home

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone admits frustration over their clash with Chelsea tonight.

Atletico will play the home-leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie in Bucharest, Romania.

Simeone said, "We take care of the game, not spending ourselves on things that we cannot solve. In today's world there are many difficulties for many workers from different sectors and we have the opportunity to play wherever.

"We love football and we will try to solve the game with our heads on what we have to do, which is the most important thing.

"They gave us several options and in the end it was in Romania.

"The trip was four hours to be playing the game that would be at home."
