Torres: Atleti can beat anyone

Fernando Torres reveals what he believes is the key to Atletico Madrid’s success. ‘We’re nothing without the team…we can beat anyone.’

Torres was speaking prior to the Champions League semi-final second leg with Bayern Munich, a tie Atleti lead 1-0 from the first meeting a week ago, and was asked if he and his teammates would take a draw at the Allianz Arena.

“No, as always we will go to win. We’re very sure of what we want and the best way to achieve it,” he said, AS reports, before discussing how Atletico have become such a hard-to-beat opponent.

“The most important thing is that we know who we are. We’re nothing if we are not a team. As a team we can beat anyone, that’s one of our strengths. We almost never concede and we almost always score. If you combine those two things you get a good result.

“Our mentality, our philosophy, is that we would die for each other. We have to be together to beat a team like Bayern, the best team we’ve faced in this season’s Champions League.”
