In the final stretch of the league championship , the draws for Atlético already begin to count almost as defeats if their pursuers do not fail. Madrid did not do it against Elche and Barcelona will have the possibility this Monday to get within four points of the leader. Diego Pablo Simeone feels the pressure on the heads of his players. The Argentine coach called for calm, fearful that anxiety would invade his players, many of them rookies in the fight for the league title. "You have to be more calm," Simeone slipped, before launching another of his disturbing messages. "Real Madrid and Barcelona are not going to lose any game from here until the end and you have to know what our path is, game by game without the anxiety appearing." The word pressure flooded the appearance of the Atlético coach. “It is normal, we have been first for most of the season. There are eleven days left, they said that Barcelona was bad and they already saw that in Paris they could win, they have a new president, enthusiasm and enthusiasm. Madrid always manages to get games ahead. We try step by step to continue our way game by game because we have two monsters behind with the illusion of being where we are. ”

In his analysis of the game, Simeone regretted the first forty-five minutes of his team. “The first half was not good, the game did not flow, there were no good transitions or depth. In the second half the team improved and in the end we had more chances to convert. I keep that the team is playing well ”. Simeone also tried to clear any negative effects of the tie. “I hold onto the last four games, we drew two and won two. We won at Villarreal and against Athletic, we drew against Real Madrid, who we were able to beat, and tonight we had a very good second half, but we were not overwhelming. ”
