Real

Madrid

has the chance to lead the competition with a victory against Sevilla, who sits in fourth place, so it will not be an easy clash for Zidane’s men, who have nothing but the La Liga to fight for after they failed in the Champions League semi-final.

 Atletico boss

Diego Simeone

has insisted that he doesn’t intend to watch the rival's match and prefers to spend the afternoon with his family.

"I don't think I will watch it," he told a media conference. "I'm not watching the games; I don't have a good time and I prefer not to watch them.

"It will not change much if I see it. I will be with the family having dinner and preparing on Monday for a good game against Real."

And about the draw against Barcelona, he says that he is happy with his player’ performance because of their high level and consistency.

"We came to Barcelona to play a game with determination and collective work, and the game that we imagined happened," he added.

"We have had a great first half. The second half was more even. The team did a great job and we are continuing on the path we are on, which is to take things game by game.

"The only thing I asked the players is to play, that they are themselves and they manage to play. And they absolutely did.

"That fills me with joy because success is in being able to compete every year where we are."
