Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has insisted that next Saturday’s Liga decider is ’50-50 like every final’.
The Rojiblancos drew 1-1 with Malaga on Sunday to stay three points in front of Barcelona at the top of the table.
But with just one game to go until the end of the season, the Argentine Coach has claimed that their final match of the campaign – away at Camp Nou – will be ‘vital’ for the club.
“It’s annoying when you give everything the game demands, because the players gave everything,” he told reporters after the game,
“Now there’s a 50-50 chance, just like in every final. The history of Atlético is eternal. Sunday is vital day for the club.
“I don’t give an opinion about our rivals. It’s not easy to win and at the end of long seasons this type of thing can happen. I played for 20 years and I understand what’s happening.”
