Léo Baptistão has praised Atlético de Madrid’s team performance in their 3-1 victory against Zenit Saint Petersburg tonight.
The Spanish outfit impressed in their Champions League opener against Luciano Spalletti’s side and Baptistão was delighted with the collective effort of the players involved.
“The team did really well tonight,” the 21 year-old commented after the game.
“We played the game that Simeone wanted us to.
"Zenit have great players and we expected no less from them."
