Simeone admits Atletico were poor

Simeone admits Atletico were poor”

With a 12-point deficit to Barcelona, Atletico were already facing an uphill task to overhaul the runaway La Liga leaders.

Willian Jose put Sociedad ahead in the 27th minute at the Anoeta Stadium.

Diego Simeone is growing in confidence that Antoine Griezmann could sign a new deal to stay at Atletico Madrid this summer and turn his back on a €100m move to Barcelona. Barcelona and England's Premier League are, according to reports, his favoured destinations.

He continued: "The match against Villarreal was much more even and against Madrid as well".

'We did not play a good first half.

FC Barcelona are just one win from being crowned as this season's champions of the Liga Santander following the 33rd round of matches in Spain played during this week.

La Real opened the scoring midway through the first half when Willian Jose hammered home a clever cut-back by ex-Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj and the Basque side were deservedly ahead at the break.

The hosts responded well, Aritz Elustondo, and Sergio Canales, twice, testing Oblak's reflexes before the half-time interval.

"We had a bad first half and although we improved we couldn't manage to score and Real Sociedad finished the game stronger than us and we have to congratulate them on the victory".

Sociedad continued to press and, as a outcome, earned the lion's share of chances in a dominant second half.

Jaunmi then rounded off the win in the second minute of time added on with a looping header that left Oblak with no chance.

Basement club Malaga dropped out of La Liga for the first time in a decade after losing 1-0 at Levante, conceding the decisive goal deep in stoppage-time when Emmanuel Boateng stabbed home from close range to take his side seven points clear of the drop zone with five games remaining.

A 93rd minute goal from Levante striker Emanuel Boetang gave his side a major boost in their battle to avoid relegation while condemning Malaga to second division football next season.
