Diego Simeone warns of an uncomfortable second leg against Reus after their first Copa del Rey meeting ended in a narrow Atletico Madrid win.
Atleti had to come from behind to beat the Segunda B side at Camp Nou Municipal, Luciano Vietto and Saul cancelling out an opener from Fran Carbia.
“The tie is tight. It’s not a comfortable result,” Simeone said, AS reports, after the final whistle.
“Reus are a competitive team, have a lot of the ball, good organisation, gave a good account of themselves. They weren’t desperate and had rhythm in the match.
“It was a competitive game and they were in it and the result. I saw a very strong team on the field.”
