"This game was important for us, we had to wait a long time for victory, that's why we worked how we worked. The important thing is that we showed again we knew how to suffer, that it didn't matter if we had to bed in to keep the result. We had the luck of scoring in the first half and had situations's like Griezmann which the keeper saved well."

On striker Kevin Gamiero, who netted his first goal of the season, Simeone added: "Each day he moves better and this makes us excited for the future."
