Diego Simeone is confident Atletico Madrid can still hurt Barcelona with the attacking options they have.
Atletico Madrid welcome Barcelona to the Calderon in the second leg of the quarterfinal UCL clash, with a 2-1 deficit.
And, despite Torres being suspended, Simeone feels Atletico have the quality to take advantage of a Barca side that suddenly appears more fragile.
In his pre-match media conference ahead of the encounter at the Vicente Calderon, Simeone said: “Being Atletico means being perseverant, competitive, to never give up and struggle against difficulties.
“We know there are better teams than us. We know we can compete against [Barcelona].
“We try to improve what we are doing game after game [against Barcelona]. We will try to find an angle and see if we can damage them and win.
“We have many options in attack, with [Luciano] Vietto, [Yannick Ferreira] Carrasco, [Antoine] Griezmann. We will see which combination works.”
