"We started off strongly, took advantage of our rival’s mistake and scored," Simeone said, as quoted by the club's official website. "Málaga, due to their necessities, worked very well and played an intense match. This was an important win."
"It was an even match, Málaga were always in it. We couldn’t find a way to feel a bit more comfortable.
"Our team is renewing itself and everyone is excited," he added. "We’re in this position because our group is working hard and because the team is always the most important thing."
