With the gigantic Champions League quarterfinal second leg just a few days away, Atlético Madrid players are very confident in their chances against Barcelona.

The Colchoneros suffered a 2-1 defeat at Camp Nou last week, but they got a vital away goal that gives them the chance of qualifying to the semifinals with a 1-0 victory. Not only that, but they can also benefit for Barça's poor current form, since the Blaugrana have won only one of the last four games.

Atlético players and fans head to the Vicente Calderón with high expectations and confidence, and a key player, midfielder Koke, has claimed his team will go through on Wednesday night.

"On Wednesday, the stadium will be rocking and we can win. It's going to be a beautiful night, certainly.

"We obviously believe in turning the tie around. If we didn't believe, we wouldn't play football. We have the right mentality to go through. Unfortunately we couldn't win the first leg because of different circumstances, but we are going to qualify at home."

Pretty confident words from Koke. He is right to think that in the current state of both Barça's and Atleti's season, but the best team in the world still holds the advantage. Wednesday should be incredible.
