Diego Simeone led his Atletico Madrid team against Barcelona yesterday as Los Colchones suffered a 1-0 loss to the Messi-led Blaugrana.

Simeone set his team up very well. Atletico held their own in an even matchup against Barca.

However, Messi took the ball in the 86th minute and there was no stopping him.

Simeone is a well-documented Messi fan, despite his fellow Argentinian beating him over and over.

His reaction yesterday is as honest as it gets, as you can do nothing but applaud the magician.

Better luck next time for Atletico manager, who now looks ahead to rejoining the title race in La Liga this season.
