Athletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann believes that Barcelona have what it takes to beat Madrid when both sides clash on Sunday in their La Liga fixtures.
Barca will be playing without injured Messi, but the French man who spoke with ESPN in an exclusive chat believes that the Catalan side has what it takes.
According to the source, the Frenchman said: “It’s going to be a great match like all the Clasicos,” Griezmann said. “It is a shame that Messi is not available for Barca, but they still have the players to win the game. Madrid is in need of a win to go forward, It will be a nice game to watch.”
Real Madrid who are currently placed seventh position on the table need an outright win to enable them move upward because another loss could jeopardize their chances of finishing top of table.
Both Madrid sides are struggling by their standards in La Liga so far this year, but Griezmann whose side are sitted fifth place on 16 points has said he is not worried about his sides current position.
