Celta Vigo goalkeeper Javi Varas believes that the game against Atletico Madrid on Friday night will provide a stern test before touching on the defeat to Real Betis.

“It will be a really difficult match because Atletico at home they are very strong and they are doing very well,” he told reporters.

“Their coach has put a lot of character on the team and nothing is going to change after their defeat to Camp Nou.

“The defeat to Betis hurt. A draw would have been fair, but we must learn from this game.

“We had four or five chances and we should have scored. Clearly we need to sharpen up and minimize our defensive mistakes.”
