Godin: We Have “Faith and Hope” to Do It Right at Home

LEVERKUSEN, Germany – Atletico Madrid’s Uruguayan player Diego Godin has said that after losing 1-0 away to Bayer Leverkusen, the side has “great faith and hope” before playing the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 clash.

Leverkusen was dominant against visiting Atletico throughout Wednesday’s first leg of the Champions League clash, but scored only a 1-0 win that leaves Atletico with a good chance of turning the tables when the series shifts to the Spanish capital.

Hakan Calhanoglu’s rocket in the 56th minute gave Bayer all they needed to win the night, though the hosts’ failure to add to their margin could come back to haunt them in the second leg.

The German side demonstrated more intensity on every part of the field, hounding Atletico players when they had the ball and then shifting from defense to offense in a heartbeat.

Atletico’s chances of pulling even evaporated with the expulsion of Tiago in the 76th minute after a second yellow card.

The defender, who will miss the second leg for having the third yellow card, told Canal Plus that despite the loss, he is still confident his side can deliver an improved showing in the return leg at the Vicente Calderon.

“It’s not a great result, but the tie is still open. We have to play at the Calderon and do things very well there,” the Uruguayan international told Canal Plus.

“I think we were lacking a bit of intensity without the ball. We’re not a team with great fluidity on the ball, but we’re usually the favorites in the game without it,” he noted.

“Our rivals played very well. They were very intense and quick and had a good game, creating chances on the break, with great speed,” he explained.
