Fernando Torres believes Atletico Madrid are ready to face Barcelona after they thrashed Sporting Gijon 5-0.
The Spanish striker contributed to the hammering of their opponents, scoring two after Griezmann was substituted.
Atletico face champions Barcelona at Camp Nou in their next league game on Wednesday and Torres believes it is the best possible time to play them, with Simeone’s side on a high.
“It’s good that all the players can help and also the substitutes,” he told beIN Sport.
“We have a positive dynamic and it is a good moment to play against Barcelona, which is the most complicated rival that we have played in last few years.
“It’s never a good time to play at Camp Nou but it is better to do so when you have confidence.
“We have found a good streak after those two draws [against Alaves and Leganes] and we started well in the Champions League [a 1-0 win over PSV]. Our confidence is high.”
