Costa: Atletico can beat any team
Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has insisted his club can beat any team with their desire following their win over rivals Real Madrid on Wednesday night.
A double from Costa and strikes from Saul Niguez as well as Koke saw Atletico register a 4-2 win over the Los Blancos in the Super Cup as Madrid began life without Cristiano Ronaldo.
"With the desire and the ‘cojones’ that we have, we can fight against any team. It was a victory that we had been looking for a long time, I am very happy," said Costa.
“They won two finals against us, we wanted to win a European final against them. It was very important to get confidence ahead of the season," he added.
Atleti will start their La Liga campaign against Valencia on Monday 20th 2018.
