Atletico Madrid coach Javier Aguirre admits he never expected his side to hit back the way they did in Saturday´s 4-2 win over Barcelona after going a goal down.

Barca went into the clash on a 15-match unbeaten run while Atletico had lost four of their last six league games and been knocked out of two cup competitions.

"We conceded the first goal very early, but not even the most optimistic people -among whom I include myself - thought that we were going to come back against Barcelona and in this way," said Aguirre.
