LaLiga: What Atletico must do before Madrid Derby – Simeone
Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, has warned his players to improve ahead of their derby clash with Real Madrid this weekend.
Los Rojiblancos beat Villarreal 2-0 this weekend, to extend their lead at the top of the LaLiga table.
However, Simeone was not entirely convinced by the display, as they prepare to host Los Blancos on March 7.
“We will prepare with great enthusiasm, wanting to improve things,” he told a post match interview with Marca.
“We will face a great rival but we have to recover well from this match, in which we have achieved a very important victory.”
Atletico lost 2-0 to Real earlier this season, but they have lost just once more in league action in 2020/2021.
