Diego Simeone, Atlético coach: “Manchester United had different characteristics than City, more direct, quicker. City are more positional, in all areas they manage things well. We’ll have to improve and be better in the good things we did two weeks ago.”
Diego Simeone, Atlético coach: “City have extraordinary players. They have better players than us. City and Bayern are the favourites because of the players they have, but last season Chelsea won. They got better, they played as a team and they won the tournament.”
Diego Simeone, Atlético coach: “What I like most about City is the effort they make to win the ball back. What impresses me is Sterling, De Bruyne, how they run and pressure, they never think a ball is lost. That’s the work ethic every coach wants.”
Josep Guardiola, Man. City manager: “It’s a joy and a pleasure to be here. Every season we arrive at this stage, I say if we arrive here in April, May fighting for titles, it’s because we have done really well. Bad results right now and you are out of the competitions.”
Josep Guardiola, Man. City manager: “They want to avoid risk in neutral areas. They are aggressive and when they win the ball, they play. Maybe I am wrong but what I have seen, they don’t close up from the back. Maybe at times, but not at the beginning. They come for you. They don’t close up. If they can, they will press.”
Josep Guardiola, Man. City manager: “There is a misconception about the way [Diego Simeone] plays. It’s more offensive than people believe. He doesn’t want to take a risk in the build-up but they are very good in the final third. They are so competitive. It depends on the movement of the game and they know how to play at the exact moment.”
Atlético have won six games in a row for the first time since February 2018 following a 4-1 home success against Alavés on Saturday. João Félix and Luis Suárez both scored twice for Diego Simeone’s men.
Manchester City remain a point clear at the Premier League summit thanks to a 2-0 win at Burnley on Saturday. Kevin de Bruyne and İlkay Gündoğan were on target in the opening 25 minutes for Pep Guardiola’s side.
