Simeone: ‘We can achieve the Impossible’
Sports Gist: Diego Simeone believes his team can embark on a Historic Come back
Sports Gist: Athletico Madrid lost 3:0 to their neighbors Real Madrid in the first leg tie of the UEFA Champions League semi final.
STAT: None of the previous five teams to lose by three or more goals at this stage of the competition have progressed from the tie.
Diego Simeone still admits his side can do the unthinkable in the second leg tie.
“They took the first part of the tie, but now there’s the second,” he told reporters after the match.
“We need to forget about this game. Now we have to try to do something impossible, but as we call ourselves Atletico Madrid, we are possibly capable.
“It’s very complicated, but it’s football. Football has unexpected things that make it marvellous.
“Until the last drop of hope is gone, we will give it everything we have.”
