Atletico eye 2015 repeat to stage

Atletico coach Diego Simeone went as far as to say that coming back from 3-0 down to holders Real Madrid in their derby at home would be "impossible" for other teams - but not his.

"I've told the players it is very hard, that we are facing the best team in the world, who score goals in every game, but that it is possible", the Argentine said after Atletico guaranteed a top-four finish in La Liga with a 1-0 win over Eibar on Saturday.

Atletico is trying to avoid losing to Madrid for the fourth straight season in the Champions League.

"I would settle to be in this position every year".

"An injustice or a failure is not giving your all, and we are giving everything we have".
