Miranda: Costa’s raring to go

Atletico Madrid defender Miranda believes that Diego Costa is ‘raring to go’ ahead of Saturday’s Liga decider.

The capital club go to Camp Nou tomorrow looking for the point that would ensure them the Liga title.

And despite a recent injury, the Brazilian centre-back has insisted that his compatriot is ready to line up against the Blaugrana.

“He's raring to play – he knows how important this is to us and he'll be on form to do his stuff,” Miranda told Marca.

“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.

“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.”
