Simeone enjoys Atleti performance
Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone believes his side have hit top form at just the right time, having won seven games in a row in all competitions.
Los Rojiblancos claimed a 5-2 La Liga victory at Sevilla to continue their fine run of recent weeks, with Atleti seven points adrift of league leaders Barcelona with 13 games still to play.

And Simeone is delighted with the way his players are performing, with the men from Madrid also still firmly in the hunt to win the Europa League this season, having suffered a disappointing campaign in the Champions League.
He told Marca after a comprehensive win the Sanchez Pizjuan: "After half-time we put in our best performance of the season so far.
"The team played very strongly and the tactics we used worked perfectly - they were carried out exactly as to how I wanted them to be.
"We must work on continuing to improve as this is a tough part of the season with plenty of tough opponents.
"Sevilla very rarely lose at home and have been doing very well under Vincenzo Montella, but we cannot think about that game any longer and must move on."
Atletico are available at 11/8 to win the Europa League this season, with Borussia Dortmund 1212/1 and Lyon, whose Parc Olympique Lyonnais will host the final, priced at 1212/1.
