Diego Simeone believes Atletico Madrid can pip Real Madrid to second place in La Liga after their 5-0 win over Granada.

Atletico are three points behind their city rivals and the Argentine believes the result against the Andalusian minnows can be the catalyst for a late charge to finish as runners-up.

“We want second place,” the 42-year-old coach told reporters.

“The team did a great job and now we have 65 points. We were able to take our chances and this made the team to play a more intense game. I am very satisfied with our work.

“We need to win matches and make sure that they do not change in the last few minutes. Today was important and showed a late fight for the highest-possible finish.

“Although, it is still impossible to say that we have secured Champions League qualification.”
