Simeone: Atletico Madrid still title outsiders

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists they're still outsiders for the title.

Atletico currently sit top of the table.

"Each match becomes long, hard and difficult," Simeone told a press conference.

"The guys are making an incredible and marvellous effort. The season is enormous but it will be valued by how it ends.

"With eight games to go, the advantage is for those who have more resources. If we get to the final four or five rounds like this, we'll liven up a bit.

"We have worked very well keeping a solid base. A group of players have wanted to improve and grow, knowing their faults and strengthening their virtues.

"This shows us that believing in what one does and working little by little, humbly, we can compete."
