The Atlético player passed up the chance to claim a hat trick by missing a late penalty against Osasuna: "Right now, we need to get some rest", he told beIN SPORTS.

Yannick Carrasco contributed two of Atlético's goals in today's 3-0 win over Osasuna. And the Belgian could have claimed a hat trick had he not missed a late penalty at the Calderón. Thomas missed a second spot-kick just moments later which means Simeone's side have missed six out of their last eight penalties. Carrasco spoke to beIN SPORTS after the game.

Pleasing afternoon: "I'm very happy about the goals. I could have scored three but the keeper pulled out a great save to stop the penalty. The most important thing was winning 3-0 and the points we've gained".

Atlético have missed their last six penalties

Two penalty misses in a minute: "Maybe we need more practice at penalties. But then there is always a goalkeeper to beat and bad luck".

Key result: "Tuesday's game is very important and so was today's. We'll give the best we've got on Tuesday. Right now, we need to get some rest".

Goals going in thick and fast: "Hopefully I can score many more".
