Diego Costa said Atletico Madrid won away to Milan because they “always manage to score in the key moment.”
He got the winner with a header from a corner in the final minutes of this Champions League tie.
“It was a very difficult game against a very tough team, but we always manage to score in the key moment,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
The Rossoneri hit the woodwork twice in the first half and had penalty appeals, but Atleti earned a 1-0 victory away from home.
“We had to keep our cool when under pressure, as we knew we’d have our chances eventually.
“We know that the tie is not finished yet. We have good result from the first leg, but Milan are a great side and anything can happen.”
