Defender João Miranda is confident Atlético Madrid can avoid defeat against Barcelona and win the La Liga title
Brazil international João Miranda is confident Atlético Madrid can get the result they need against Barcelona on Saturday.
Diego Simeone’s side require just a point to secure the La Liga title - at the expense of their opponents - and Miranda believes Atlético will be 100 per cent prepared to overcome the reigning champions.
"They'll come out strong and we will have to stay tight at the back because I'm sure we'll score a goal against them," he told Marca, as reported by GOAL.com.
"To beat Barcelona, we have to play with a lot of intensity, to play well physically. We've been preparing for it very well all week and will arrive 100 per cent ready."
