Filipe Luis: Barcelona clash exciting for Atletico Madrid fans

Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis admits Sunday's clash with Barcelona will be decisive in the title race.

Atletico go into the game just five points behind the LaLiga leaders.

Luis said, "Being five points behind the leader and playing against them is very good for the people, but since he arrived, El Cholo works week by week, planning training, moulding the team according to the opponent we are going to play against, depending on their strengths and weaknesses, prepares the tactics and the eleven ... we already know him and we know that, even though the team sometimes don't play well at all, the solid base, sacrifice and intensity are always there.

"Now that we have our top players in great shape, everything is easier. The team has gone through ups and downs throughout the season, but by maintaining the level of intensity, aggressiveness and unity, good football arrives. I hope it continues like this until the end."
