Diego Simeone was happy with the performance his put in and the result they took from this afternoon's game against Celta at Balaídos. 

Victory: "There wasn't a great deal between us in the first half, we started well, but Celta had clear chances on goal, they created spaces... In the second half, after Koke's goal, the team was strong, dominant and and you could sense that whenever we broke we were going to do damage. The goals started going in as a consequence of our previous game, when the ball didn't want to enter for us, and it's clear that scoring liberates you and gives you the chance to start managing the game". 

The team: "I'm going home happy because the structure of the team was the same as always. El Atlético has the same structure, and the individual talent we have strengthened the structure of the team". 

Celta: "Celta are a side who are constantly reinventing themselves; they had plaers out for this match and scoring first gave us the possibility of reading the game better. We also did a good good of closing up at the back and that helped us when we went ahead in the second half".
