The English press are at it again...

Quote:
Antoine Griezmann said it, Filipe Luís said it and Jan Oblak said it, too: Leicester are similar to Atlético, both for what they have done – and they more than most teams in this competition appreciate that – and for how they play. Strong, physical, well organised. Difficult to overcome defensively, and swift to counter‑attack, direct. As one opposition coach here at the Calderón put it: “Horrible kind people to play against.”

Diego Simeone, the Atlético manager, suggested there would not be many goals but when it was put to him that Leicester might “renounce” possession (the implication being “just like you”), he responded: “I don’t think they will renounce the ball, I think they choose to play the way that suits them best consisting the qualities of the players. With the explosiveness of Vardy, who I like a lot, they are vertical, intense, precise at times. They strengthen the qualities of their players and that is what took them to their place in Europe.”

It is, he insisted, what he does too; what has taken Atlético to their current place. He welcomed the idea that Atlético may have provided a model for other clubs, like Leicester, to follow. A club who challenged the status quo and opened other paths. “Football is wonderful because no one is right: there’s no absolute truth. Maybe other teams have looked at us and thought that.”

Sitting alongside him Atlético’s captain, Gabi Fernández, cited “the humility and ambition we both play with” and added: “They did something very important last year, winning the league, like we did. We’re proud to face them tomorrow.”

Shorry; E don do! This is punching a man that has hit the canvas.

Yujam is a good guy, but in some ways he is similar to a number of people on this site (especially a few that make their living by making up words, sentences and paragraphs), by sometimes looking at issues from ideological standpoints (or paypoints) & closing the eyes to the facts.

The difference was very clear today. Leicester aren't even close to Atletico in any aspect of the game whether it is passing, defending, tactical posture or intelligence in the way they play. Atleti had their way with them and it is actually quite fortunate for Leicester that the game only ended 1 to 0. There is a world of difference between the way the two sides play football

If it makes you feel better then sure.

But some of us don't need to be spoon fed stuff to understand what's happening ;-)

There is no comparison between Atleti and Leicester, in terms of quality. Even in terms of tactics. Leicester has more of a vertical approach to the game with booting the ball forward for Vardy to run on to, or sometimes, using their wingers to run directly at opponents. Atleti's midfielders actually know how to pass and move with the ball. I think the game today showed that clearly. perhaps, with Atleti being the home team, one can argue that their home crowd gave them more confidence and an advantage, so lets wait for the game at the Kings Power Stadium.

However, I have watched both sides, and their tactics are quite different. And of course, Atleti has significantly better players.

we are going to pretend the Atleti players + coach listed below did not confirm what the thread is about.

ok

We aren't sheep. Most of here understand football and don't need Simeone to tell us the obvious. LC does not play football like Atleti does. That was the point of this thread

How did Leicester City and Atletico Madrid get each other in this round? They are the two weakest team left in the round of 8

...and one of the goals technically shouldn't have been awarded.

But I do agree that Atleti is superior. I think what the English press meant by the comparison was that they're both underdogs that managed to win their domestic leagues despite more heralded opponents...doing so with grit, determination and hard work. I'm not sure they meant they're as good as Atleti mano-a-mano.
