Atletico head coach Diego Simeone has spoken out about the pressure of winning the Spanish championship, La Liga.
“It’s normal,” the coach told Marca.
‘We have been on top for almost the whole season. There are still 11 matches to go,” he continued.
“People said Barcelona are not doing well but look at what they did in Paris. They have a new president and the excitement is growing.
“Real have always scored points in their matches. We have a job to do and we continue on our way. There are two monsters behind us who want to be where we are.”
At the moment, Real Madrid have 57 points, while Barcelona have 56 points and a match in hand.
Meanwhile, Atletico are first with 63 points.
