Saul Niguez believes Atletico can beat Liverpool in the Champions League as his side know how to beat big teams.

Saul believes Atletico can beat Liverpool and is looking forward to the highly anticipated clash.

Atletico face holders Liverpool who are in superb form and everyone expects the Reds to blow away their opponents.

But the 25-year-old is ignoring all of Liverpool’s brilliant form as he brands his side the “big team beaters”.

 Saul told The Guardian when asked about what can be done about the stunning numbers Liverpool are posting: “You break them.

“There’s no memory in football: what you did yesterday is no use.

“We had a good run before Christmas then we fell away and it was hard. People wanted to kill us. Do I think it’s unfair? Honestly, yes. But it’s life.

“People whistle Cholo [Simeone], important players; the fans are demanding. If we win two or three games, it’ll change again.

“We know how we can hurt Liverpool, their strengths and weaknesses, and we always compete against big teams.”

Saul has had a fairly quiet season by his standards..with only two league goals and would be hoping to back his words with a good shift against Liverpool tomorrow.
