It has been a fortunate thing for the Atletico as events are underway for the rivals. The La Liga 2013-14 was one of the finest moments for Diego Simeone. Atletico Madrid won the tournament with the last match being a draw with 1-1 against Barcelona at Camp Nou. That was the final day of the season and one can clearly recall the tension, the fight put up by both the teams.
The Atletico has reached the finals of Champions League twice since that moment. The sole objective cum obsession of the coach is the continental competition to be faced in near future. The La Liga, next, is going to be the 7th year for the Argentinian coach to face Barcelona once again. Simeone has never beaten the Catalan club in this tournament and that is the only thing he wants to achieve with his dream team. Even though, they are sure that they have the capacity to beat Barcelona when Rojiblancos knocked out Barcelona both times during their march towards Champions League. It was not just once, but twice. This is a mere hope in the eyes of the coach and he is not going to leave any stones unturned.
In words of the coach himself, Barcelona has always been the best in the world, despite not being at the top of European games always. He believes that the two times they did better than them in the League, and this is yet another chance. He stresses the word “opportunity” which is always important in football.
