Simeone’s side affirmed their second-place finish on the Spanish top flight log in the day of the LaLiga following a 2-2 draw with Eibar at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Los Rojiblancos also emerged winners in the Europa League after a far-reaching 3-0 triumph over Marseille with Antoine Griezmann, who is on National obligation getting ready for the FIFA World Cup with his French colleagues, getting a brace at the Europa League final.
