We know each other well. We're happy to be just one step away from the final but it's the most difficult one of all. Atlético are in good form and so are we. There are three Liga matches until we play the first European game and both sides will go into it well. It's going to be intense.

Clemente Villaverde, former Atlético defender and current director
It's great to be in a third semi-final in four years. We're proud to represent Atlético. They will be two difficult games for us. Our fans and players have lived through two lost finals and know what it means and takes to get there – a lot of work. Hopefully we can give the Vicente Calderón the goodbye it deserves.
