In an interview prior to their game against Porto that appeared on Marca, João Félix discussed his thoughts on what Atlético Madrid can achieve in the Champions League.
Atlético Madrid are set to kick-off their Champions League campaign this evening at 21.00 local time against Porto.
Félix believes that Los Colchoneros are ready to face the challenge:
“The feeling we have is that the team is doing well, we are motivated, we are always looking to go through the Champions League game-by-game and that’s how we will continue.”
The Portuguese striker doesn’t necessarily think that Atléti are favourites to progress from their group:
“I see it as everyone in the Champions League group is a favourite, everyone can win, this is football. There are no probabilities, anything can happen, the first can lose to the last, it’s the Champions League. Everyone is a champion in their country and everyone is a favourite.”
Félix also revealed his thoughts regarding Antoine Griezmann‘s situation at the club:
“I get on well with him, he’s a world class player, it’s very good that he’s with us and that he hasn’t left. He gives us things that others don’t have. He’s always a help and that’s the way it has to be.”
