Garcia delighted with second 45

Getafe boss Luis Garcia was pleased with his side's second half performance, despite their 2-0 loss to Atletico Madrid.

First half strikes from Adrian and Arda Turan gave Diego Simeone's men the three points, and the 39-year-old Coach has admitted that his men were poor in the opening 45 but reacted well.

“The first half was very poor,” he told a Press conference. “None of my players looked interested. But in the second half we reacted really well.

“The opening period we looked shy and timid. Atletico dominated us physically – overwhelming us in duels and second balls. I think that's why we lost.”
