'He did a good job', Simeone hails Carrasco after Barcelona draw

Diego Simeone has hailed winger Yannick Carrasco following his performance during Atletico Madrid's 2-2 draw with Barcelona on Tuesday night. 

Madrid denied Barcelona to go top of the LaLiga table as they came from behind twice to secure a point away at Nou Camp. The two goals for Atletico came from a penalty kick that were both won by Carrasco and Simeone heaped praise on the winger after the match. 

"Carrasco did a good job tonight. He has found it difficult since coming back, and he put in a huge effort here," he told Marca.

"He played a decisive role tonight. Against Bilbao, he played well, but tonight was his most complete game."

The draw meant that the Catalans missed the chance to reclaim the top stop and go above Real Madrid who are a point above Barcelona with a game in hand.
