Koke: Only Barcelona play good football

Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke believes ‘only Barcelona play good football’ and he tipped the Catalan giants for the Champions League title.

Ernesto Valverde’s side hold a three-goal advantage over Liverpool from the first leg of their Champions League semi-final following on from Wednesday night’s clash at the Camp Nou.

“For me only Barcelona play good football,” Koke told RNE, as cited by Marca.

“They are the favourite to win the Champions League, if Messi is good there is not much to do.

“We have had the same style for seven years that have allowed us to triumph, and when we tried to change, it was worse for us, so why should we change?

“Our season? The expectations were very high but we have to see the reality, for me the team has been good, it has been a great season but equally we have lost important matches.

“We have the disappointment of Juventus (Atleti’s Champions League defeat in the Round of 16), but in the end that was against a great team.”
