Diego Simeone sends transfer message to Atletico Madrid star Jan Oblak

Diego Simeone sends transfer message to Atletico Madrid star Jan Oblak

Atletico Madrid has won at crosstown rival Getafe 1-0 in its last match before playing the Europa League final.

Atletico are second in the standings on 78 points, three ahead of Real Madrid with one game left and Atletico's superior head-to-head record means they finish above their neighbours for the first time since winning the title in 2014.

Griezmann has been Atletico's most significant player over the last four seasons but he has had an uneasy relationship with the club in the previous year and is widely expected to move to Liga champions Barcelona at the end of this campaign.

On a miserable night for mid-table Celta, Sergi Gomez put through his own net on 74 minutes, leaving German internatonal Toni Kroos to tuck away Real's sixth goal after 81 minutes.

However, he also scored in the 1-0 victory in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final against Arsenal, earning Atletico a place in Wednesday's final and ending Arsene Wenger's last hopes of European glory with the Gunners.

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale (R) celebrates his goal with teammates.

Since rejoining his former side in September, and after sitting out three months because of Atletico Madrid's ban on registering players, Costa has only three league goals in 14 appearances.

Simeone added that Vitolo would be fit in time for the Europa League final.

"I understand that it's nearly impossible for the guys who decide this to keep everybody happy, there will always be somebody unhappy, we're okay if they just do things with common sense".

In the 77th minute, Getafe were awarded a penalty but Faycal Fajr failed to equalise as Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak dove the right way to make the save.

"The 16 players we have available will all be in the squad, we began this season with these players and we'll finish it with them", Simeone told a news conference. "We're going to try and make the most competitive team possible against an opponent that is having a fantastic season".

After being held to a goalless draw at Roma in their opening fixture and following that result with a 2-1 home defeat to Chelsea, Atleti's trip to Qarabag was a must-win fixture for Simeone's men.

"It has been fantastic, I'd say a bit too much, but I am very grateful to the club for this detail", Prieto said.
