'Atletico & Barcelona are the best teams in the world'

Rojiblancos chief Enrique Cerezo lauded La Liga's top two as the pinnacle in football right now ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash
Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are currently the two best teams in the world, according to Rojiblancos president Enrique Cerezo.

Atleti bagged their fourth draw with the Catalans of the season last week when they came away from Camp Nou with a 1-1 result heading into the Champions League quarter-final second leg on Wednesday.

The Atleti chief suggested that victory over the reigning Spanish champions will see them face Real Madrid - in either the semi-final or the final - and insisted he does not know if Diego Costa will shake off injury to be fit to face Gerardo Martino's men.

"Atletico will play a superb game, we're going to do great at the Vicente Calderon," Cerezo told COPE.

"If we get through then we will surely face Real Madrid at some point. On Wednesday, the two best teams in the world will play in Atletico and Barca.

"I do not know if we will play Costa."

Atletico lead La Liga by one point over Barca, with the Blancos lagging a further two points behind in an enthralling three-way tussle for the 2013-14 crown.
