Diego Simeone is pleased with the joint effort of his men, after they remained unbeaten following their gruelling 10-day schedule, with their liga title shot still in play.
An own goal from Diego Reyes, with strikes from Niguez and Griezmann securing a 3-0 win over Real Sociedad.
The comfortable victory came after the win over Real Madrid and back-to-back goalless draws against PSV and Villarreal.
And speaking post-match, Simeone told reporters: “I think that after these 10 days, in terms of the competition that we had ahead of us, we did it well.
“Especially from the collective effort that was made by playing a match almost every two-and-a-half days and recovering well from one match to another.
“I think that today’s game went very well at the beginning. We found ways to play a good match. We played well from the midfield upwards, having chances to score.
“The second goal at the start of the second half also made us live more comfortably for the remainder of the game.”
Atletico are five points adrift of title holders and leaders Barcelona after 27 rounds, though the reigning champions have played a game less as they prepare to face Rayo Vallecano away from home on Wednesday.
“We keep trying to improve ourselves. We know it’s very unlikely Barcelona will lose matches. So we only think about ourselves,” Simeone added.
