Next Match: at home to Valencia, December 15
Europe: UEFA Champions League (Group G)
Diego Simeone has insisted he has no preferences as to which side Atletico Madrid meet in the last 16 of the Champions League. The draw takes place next Monday and Atletico are one of eight seeded teams after finishing top of their group with 16 points and still unbeaten in the tournament. But the Argentinian coach told a press conference: "We don't consider ourselves to be better than anyone else. Any knock-out tie is always going to be very close and there are many teams in the competition with more experience than us. Looking at the teams who have finished second, there is a lot of quality. We are looking forward to seeing who we get but whoever it is we know it will be difficult."
