Atletico Madrid No1 Courtois ready for battle with Barcelona star Messi

Atletico Madrid do not fear Barcelona star Lionel Messi ahead of their big clash, says goalkeeper Thiabut Courtois. The on-loan Chelsea keeper faces a personal battle with the Argentine.

"Do I fear Messi? No, no, I am not afraid of anyone," the 20-year-old told reporters.

"He is a great player and we respect him very much, but there is no fear.

"Now we are focused and the team wants to do their best at the Camp Nou. Barcelona have a very good group of players."
