Sevilla coach Lopetegui on Atletico Madrid defeat: We must be self-critical

Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui admits they weren't good enough for defeat to Atletico Madrid.

Atletico won 2-0 thanks to goals from Marcos Llorente and Alvaro Morata.

Lopetegui said: “The situation of the team is not what we want. I'm sure the team will change that. I am sad today. We need to be calm knowing that what happens until the end of the season is up to us. We have to be self-critical starting from ourselves.

"The idea was to do more harm to Atlético. We knew we had to take care of the details. It was a very balanced match. The 0-1 was totally avoidable. In the second we changed things a bit. We lacked clarity and calm.

"We received a very big punishment with the second goal. They get three deserved points."
