“The allegations made by Madrid made me laugh a lot,” Simeone said at a press conference today.
The Argentine tactician also stressed that despite his side’s new status as league leaders, his side remained third favourites in the title race.
“Madrid and Barca continue to be favourites, they have everything in their favour.
“If there were only two or three matches left it would be different. We need to win all our matches and that will be very difficult.
“We need to go game by game because I can see that we have expectations now. Nine matches are a lot.
“We’ll see whether we are ready to handle the pressure of being leaders.
“The reality is that in 40 years Atletico have been champions once. To be able to talk about this situation we need to be in the same position in five matches time.”
