Diego Simeone didn't blame VAR for Atletico Madrid's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid despite two questionable calls in the match.

"Atletico Madrid lost because of a convincing opponent. I don't usually speak about VAR and I believe it's something that will surely get better and make things more efficient for all. I can't see the replays like those working with VAR do, so I hope they were correct with the decisions. I definitely don't think we lost because of VAR. The opposition were better than us and more convincing. They had a very good game. So we congratulate them and prepare for the next one," said Simeone.

Real Madrid were awarded a penalty in the first half despite the initial contact appearing to take place outside of the box. Alvaro Morata also had a goal correctly ruled out due to offsides after VAR.
