Diego Simeone insists Barcelona are still not as good as Real Madrid

Diego Simeone insists Barcelona are still not as good as Real Madrid”

La Liga top scorer this season with 11 goals in seven games, Messi has been a big part of the Barcelona team which now top the table with seven wins from seven games.

But Simeone, while praising Barca's work in adapting to the loss of Neymar, still sees Zinedine Zidane's men as the best team in the world. "They have a winning gene, they do not get exhausted". Simeone has lost eight of his 11 league games since his appointment in December 2011, but he insists Atletico have always done themselves justice in the fixture.

"[Griezmann] is a guy who speaks very clearly and often players talk when they feel they are not being valued as they deserve".

"We have not beaten Barcelona in the league, but we've always played well against them", Simeone said. Then they get more attention. "We tied the most important one that was the one that gave us LaLiga [in 2013-14] and we have knocked them out twice in the Champions League".

Brazil and Argentina share one of the fiercest rivalries in worldwide football, yet Brazilian left back Filipe Luis has nothing but praise for Argentine talisman Lionel Messi, even claiming that the Barcelona superstar could win the league with even a mediocre team.

The Atleti defender said: "I have played more than 30 games against him and I play the part of the butcher, but is that being totally honest?"

"Both Filipe Luis and Lucas Hernández received the clearance from medical staff and will be available for Saturday's match against FC Barcelona".

"Atletico are candidates for the league title, they are tough to break down and score against". Messi had that night that all Argentines wanted and asked for. They defend as a unit and are disciplined.

"I know the best way to stop him".

Nevertheless, with pro-Spain sentiment also rising sharply as a result of the crisis, it promises to be a hostile atmosphere in the Wanda; something Cerezo tried to calm in an interview on Spanish radio.
