Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone claims that his side were "superior" after brushing aside Lokomotiv Moscow in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has insisted that his side were "superior" after beating Lokomotiv Moscow at the Wanda Metropolitano in the Europa League.

Atleti ensured that they put at least one foot in the quarter-finals thanks to a 3-0 win in the Spanish capital, as goals from Saul Niguez, Diego Costa and Koke handed Simeone's men a comfortable win over the Russian side.

"In the whole match we were superior," Simeone told reporters after the game. "In the first half we did not play so well, had to answer some questions that they had posed.

"In the second half we stopped them better. With three in between we had more tranquility and the game was more continuous and fast.

"We will have to adapt in the best way so that this result has weight in the second leg."

Atletico return to La Liga action against Celta Vigo on Sunday as they aim to bounce straight back from last weekend's tough defeat against league leaders Barcelona.
