Diego Simeone believes his absence from the touchline will not be felt by Atletico Madrid's players as they prepare to take on Arsenal in their Europa League semi-final.

Simeone will serve a touchline ban in the second leg at the Wanda Metropolitano after his dismissal to the stands during the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.

The Argentine left his technical area during the 1-1 draw in north London to furiously protest against a red card shown to Sime Vrsaljko.
