Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid coach): “I’ve been here for 11 years and I don’t think I can remember a game where we haven’t changed the system for the 90 minutes, or from game to game. I do what we have done for many years, always looking for what the rival presents to us, trying to find the best solutions for the team. It’s clear the boys know different systems to the ones we use and we’ll be looking for what we think is best for tomorrow’s game. (tuesday). In 2018 it was a complex match that we played here. We finished 0-0, a game that has always been difficult on their ground, with a lot of dynamism from their fans.
Brugge have a great coach today, with a very good style of play, a dynamic, with a lot of pressure, with a lot of attacking play, with a lot of players in the opposing camp. And it shows in recent years, having won three Championships in a row, and this year continuing to compete as they did in their Champions League debut: either with Leverkusen or by going to Porto and scoring 4 goals. The results speak for themselves: the style of Bruges is very, very good. »
