Real Valladolid Coach Miroslav Djukic has claimed that his side will go for a win against Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
The Pucela travel to Vicente Calderon to face Diego Simeone's on form Rojiblancos, and the Serbian boss believes his team has what it takes to come away with three points.
"It is a tough game,” the former Valencia sweeper told AS. “But we can beat any team. They are a good side, with quality in attack and defence, but we have to go to the Calderon and go for it.”
Djukic believes the players left out of Atleti's Europa League encounter against Hapoel Tel-Aviv on Thursday will return on Sunday.
“They have a great squad, and rotation will play its part. You have to believe that they will leave several players in Madrid so they are not tired against us.”
Djukic concluded by confirming that German midfielder Patrick Ebert will be fit for the game, despite the 25-year-old not having trained on Thursday.
“Ebert did not train because we did not want to risk him. He will be fit.”
