Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: Llorente and Suarez ready for Barcelona

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is confident Luis Suarez and Marcos Llorente being in the right frame of mind for their clash with Barcelona.

Atletico and Barca face-off for the LaLiga leadership this weekend.

Simeone said of his in-form pair: "Their season speaks for itself. They have been having a fantastic season, two extraordinary players, one with a lot of history, like Luis, claiming what was not expected of him, and Llorente doing one of the best years of his career.

“We have been playing this season with a very strong idea, sometimes expressed in a better way and sometimes not so good. We will not vary much from what we have done.

"We'll imagine what we have been doing, the best of what we have done, and we will try to get closer to that."
