Luis Muriel hopes that Atalanta will gain enough confidence to play in the Champions League against Real Madrid with tonight's win over decimated Napoli.
It was very important that we win today and the victory could be crucial in the race for the Champions League places, it also gives us a big boost for Wednesday’s game with Real Madrid
,” Muriel told Sky Sport Italia.
"We’ve got it into our heads that we want a run of victories in Serie A to make up for dropping points earlier in the season, so we gave our all.
“If we can play with this balance, this attacking verve, creating this many chances, then we can make life very difficult for Real Madrid.
“We want to make the most of this unique opportunity and prove that we are up to the task.”
Muriel's goal today was one of the best goals he has scored in his career.
“It was certainly one of our best performances, especially as it was against such a strong opponent. I am getting more playing time lately and I want to make the most of it.”
