Stefan Savic believes there is disproportionate attention given to defeats as opposed to victories for his side in the Spanish La Liga.

Atletico Madrid was defeated for the first time this season by Real Sociedad this past weekend.

And Los Colchoneros defender Stefan Savic is hopeful they can return to winning ways against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League.

“We don’t pay too much attention to what they say about us,” Savic told Radio Marca.

“When we win, we are amazing. When we lose, we are the opposite.”

He added: “We just focus on ourselves.”

“Juventus are more than just Cristiano.”

“They have great champions in their team,” he said.

“[Ronaldo] is one of the most important in history and we will be attentive.”

Savic remembers the 3-2 aggregate elimination in the Champions League Round of 16: “I arrived here [at Atletico] in 2015 and it was the worst game I remember.”

“That elimination hurt us a lot.”
