Atlético de Madrid coach Diego Simeone felt that the 3-0 scoreline his team registered in tonight's Copa del Rey quarter final first leg against Eibar flattered his team in what was a fiercely-contested match.
Praise for Eibar
Three-goal advantage: "Our opponents this evening have been working well both in the league and in the Cup. It wasn't as easy as the score might suggest".
Tie done and dusted: "No, because we know that the Copa can always throw up complicated situations".
Objective: "As always, the next game, against Athletic, who are very strong at their stadium".
