They won't be competing in Europe for the remainder of the season, having won just one group stage game in the Champions League.

Atletico, who are currently third in La Liga, will be hoping to secure qualification for next season's Champions League with a top four finish.

Antoine Griezmann, who started up front, told reporters after the match: "We did not deserve to reach the last 16 or even the Europa League, time to shut our mouths, work, and fight."
