Atletico Madrid coach Quique Sanchez Flores feels that victory at Barcelona is not impossible.
Atletico Madrid coach Quique Sanchez Flores has stressed that it is not impossible for his team to leave the Camp Nou with three points on Saturday evening.

Los Colchoneros have conceded 14 goals in their last three visits to Catalunya, and face a Barcelona side looking to break the Primera Division record for consecutive victories.

However, speaking to the media today, Sanchez Flores said he feels that while it will be hugely difficult for his team to emerge victorious, there remains a chance of success.

He stated: “We play a landmark world rival, winning is difficult but not impossible. Barcelona are close to perfection and are artists. We have made things difficult for them before, and can do so again.

“They have very few weaknesses. If the team can maintain maximum concentration from the beginning, we can put things right, and if not, it will be very difficult. We beat them last season, but this is a team with three Ballon d’Or nominees.”

Sanchez Flores also accepted that the team are struggling through a difficult period at the moment, adding: “We have accepted the crisis, our minds are ready we have endured the pain of the situation. There is a different mentality now.”
