Former Real Madrid Coach Fabio Capello has run the rule over La Liga title contenders Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

The Italian tactician believes that while Barca have shown signs of returning to their best of late and Atleti have great desire, Los Blancos have greater prospects of success this season.

“I watched El Clasico one day afterwards because I was flying while they were playing,” Capello said to EFE.

“It was a great match and a great advert for Spanish football throughout the world.

“Of course we will see a different league now, but we also need to see how it affects the Champions League.

“I think Madrid have the most possibilities, because they have the biggest squad and are playing very well.

“Barca have gone back to being the team the whole world knows. Atletico have surprised me but I saw them play against Barca in Madrid.

“Atleti have a huge desire and strength, but they have a thin squad. When they play in the Champions League against Barca we need to see what will happen in the following league games.

“They are playing very, very well. They are very compact and have a winning mentality.”
