Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has promised that the team's season will not peter out following their Champions League exit.

Diego Simeone's team failed to progress to the last 16 of the competition after finishing third in Group C following their 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Tuesday.

Atletico finished four points behind leaders Roma and runners-up Chelsea and will be playing in the Europa League in the new year.

Atletico, who were beaten Champions League finalists in 2014 and 2016, are 5.50 to win the Europa League this season, while AC Milan can be backed at 15.00 and Arsenal at 7.00.

"At the end, it didn't work out how we wanted. We didn't get the three points, didn't win and we're not happy," said Oblak.

"We're out of the Champions League and we're sad about that. We have to pick our heads up, look ahead and play our best in the upcoming games.

"Everyone knows we should have won the third and fourth games [against Qarabag], but it's not easy against anybody [at this level]. Everyone plays good football and Qarabag showed it's tough to beat them. We beat Roma at home, but it was a bit late and there wasn't to be a miracle."
