Luis Muriel is enjoying a rich vein of form and insists Atalanta can vanquish Real Madrid in the Champions League. ‘If we give our all and believe in ourselves, we can beat anyone.’
Playing against Real Madrid is always prestigious and I am enjoying this moment,
” Luis Muriel said.
The only way to put in a great performance is to give it everything we’ve got. We beat Sevilla 3-2 at home by playing a great game in a moment when they were in excellent shape.
“If we give our all and believe in ourselves and our own characteristics, we can beat anyone. If we play the way we know how, then we can compete at the highest levels.”
Atalanta’s performance in the Champions League has been surprising. Real Madrid, on the other hand, are struggling this season.
The Colombia international was quizzed whether Atalanta can cause a shock against the Merengues?
Watching their most recent games, we’d be mad not to. We have to keep our eyes open and understand that Real Madrid don’t stop being a great team even if they have a lot of injuries.
“Their history is clear, when they don’t play well in La Liga, that’s when they step up and pull something out of the hat in the Champions League.”
No supporters are going to be present to witness their interesting encounter.
It takes so much away from us and the fans, as they saw the team through years of challenging for far less prestigious targets, it’s a pity not to have them with us right now.”
