Iraola appreciates Atleti quality

Athletic Bilbao defender Andoni Iraola has conceded that his team will have to be at their best to get a result against Atletico Madrid.

The Basque side currently sit in 14th position, having won just six League games all season.

And the 30-year-old full-back knows that they will be up against it when they face Diego Simeone's men.

“We will have to play a very good game,” he told reporters. “They are a team that leave very few spaces at the back and can counter-attack well.

“We are going to have to produce a brilliant performance.

“There have been signs of improvement from us in recent weeks, but tomorrow will be a real test for us.”
