We did everything possible and we tried our best: Atletico Madrid coach Simeone on RB Leipzig defeat

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone feels he could'nt have done more after their Champions League quarterfinal defeat to RB Leipzig.

Los Rojiblancos were beaten 2-1 by RB Leipzig in Lisbon and El Cholo was happy to accept the defeat.

"They won the duels, they won the fouls, they won at understanding the game," Simeone said at full time.

"We struggled to get into the game.

"Maybe when they made it 2-1, after we'd got back to 1-1, was when the game was the calmest.

"We'd got through that phase where they were better and the second goal appeared in a game in which we couldn't play how we wanted to.

"We did everything possible.

"The players gave everything they could.

"We didn't have anything else.

"It was our turn to lose.

"[We gave] everything.

"We got to the quarter finals. It would've been nice to go further.

"We go out fairly against a team we have to congratulate."
