Simeone: Celta favourites now

Diego Simeone makes Celta Vigo favourites for the Copa del Rey tie with Atletico Madrid after a goalless draw at Balaidos.

Cholo told reporters following the final whistle that Eduardo Berizzo’s side have a better chance of going through as a score draw will be enough for them at Vicente Calderon.

“It’s an opening with a better percentage for them as they benefit from any draw,” Simeone said, AS according to AS, having also declined to discuss his relationship with Eduardo Berizzo.

“It’s difficult but our opponent can have any score draw, while we have to win.

“Every time there is more effort and more work for the demand of the games. We’ll have to rest and get in our best shape for the next encounter.

“Handball by Thomas? I didn’t see it, the players were in the way.”
