Coach Atletico Madrid Diego Simeone said that while not thinking about the Champions League.
Take Cristiano Ronaldo and Koke goal saw atlético beat real Mallorca 3-0 on Friday to extend their unbeaten run to 14 matches in all competitions.
Part of this was eliminating Liverpool in the Champions League last 16 to book their place in the quarterfinals.
But Simeone, whose team consolidated third place in the La Liga table, reports the Liga Champions have not been a problem, even with a quarter-final draw will take place on July 10.
“I’m not thinking about the Champions League at the moment,” he said at a press conference.
“There are four very important games against teams also fighting for a place in LaLiga. We will just continue to compete until the end of the season, as we always do.
“We now have a little more time to rest, which is every four days, if I’m not mistaken.
“And now we’re just going to try to have a little continuity, because there’s a bit more time to recover. Now the players are starting to prepare and used quickly getting ready physically again to the next game.”
Atletico in action on Tuesday when they visit Celta Vigo.
