Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has defended two of his players for reacting angrily to being substituted during the Champions League match with hosts Red Bull Salzburg of Austria in Group A. It was an important game with the two teams battling to qualify for the last 16 of the competition. In what was the final group game for the two teams, Atletico Madrid secured their spot in the next round ahead of their opponents with a 2-0 away win courtesy the goals from Mario Hermoso and Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco either side of the break.

During the game, Luis Suarez and Saul Niguez reacted angrily after they were substituted shortly after the hour mark. Angel Correa and Hector Herrera came on for Luis Suarez and Saul Niguez respectively on 64 minutes with the game in the balance as Red Bull Salzburg laid siege on the Atletico Madrid goal in search of an equaliser at that point after defender Hermoso had scored his first Atletico Madrid goal in the first half.
