The incredible defensive cover brilliantly highlights the players' desire which has been instilled in the side by Diego Simeone.

As expected, 'Atleti' executing Simeone's philosophy left fans in awe.

"Not a fan of simeones brand of football, but his ability to bring the out the highest level of commitment from his players is genius," one Twitter user wrote.

A second Tweeted: "I'll always choose a more proactive method of defending breakaways and turnovers but simeone does really lay down the law and demand alot."

A third Tweeted: "That's amazing. The way almost all of the players track back immediately at top speed to defend."

A Tweet read: "Look at that tracking back, If you're the attacker you'd actually be scared."

While another wrote: "We all say that Diego Simeone's tactics are boring but look at that commitment to not concede a goal. Any attacker running forward would be daunted at the prospect of having a whole team chase you like rabid dogs. This is world class defending. Atletico style."
