Atlético Madrid played Tuesday night in the Champions League home at 1-1 match against Qarabag FK, leaving the team of Diego Simeone, with two more matches to go, four and five points behind on Chelsea and AS Roma respectively. There is therefore a chance that Atlético, currently third in Group C, will be condemned to play the Europa League, and Gabi is not waiting for that.
“As I look at it now, I think the Europa League Shit, even though it has brought us a lot,”says the disappointed leader of los Colchoneros speaks frankly to various media immediately after the end of the Champions League duel,”What hurts us most is that we no longer have it in our own hands, that is the bitter reality”.
“We must now win from Roma and hope that Qarabag Chelsea can beat. As it stands now, we are out. We have a chance, but it is very small. We must continue to work hard and learn from this competition. There is nothing else on it but our back straight. In the first half we were bad, but in the second half we got opportunities. Unfortunately, it was not allowed to be so.
