Soccer – Simeone vows to fight on

Diego Simeone says his Atletico Madrid side will try to achieve 'something practically impossible' in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final. Simeone saw his side beaten 3-0 at Real Madrid in their semi-final first leg, leaving Los Rojiblancos with a mountain to climb if they are to reach the final of the competition for the third time in four seasons. However, Simeone is hoping for an amazing turnaround, with Atleti 20/1 with bet365 to reach the final. The Argentinian told "Football is a marvellous game and anything can happen. I still think we have a chance of going through. "We are going to try until the very, very end, until the final whistle is blown in the second leg. We are going to try and do something practically impossible next week." Atletico have suffered greatly at the hands of Real in recent times, losing the Champions League finals of both 2014 and 2016 to their city rivals.
