Champions League: Simeone reveals how Atletico beat Liverpool 3-2



Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, has revealed the game plan that saw his team dump Liverpool out of the Champions League.

The LaLiga arrived at Anfield with a slim advantage, after winning 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The Reds levelled the tie within 90 minutes and Robert Firmino made it 2-0 early in extra time.

However, Marcos Llorente scored twice to swing the tie in Atletico’s favour, before Alvaro Morata netted a third goal.

Simeone, whose side were without the ball for most of the game, explained how he set up his side.

“[We play] to win. With our weapons, to win,” he told BT Sport.

“Respecting our identity, respecting the characteristics of the players, exploiting the defects of the opponents, that’s how we play.”
