The Brazilian defender is eagerly anticipating Wednesday's Primera Division encounter, and is hoping Los Colchoneros will bag the full three points at the Vicente Calderon

Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis is dreaming of beating rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish capital derby in the next round of La Liga.

Los Colchoneros were defeated 2-0 by Levante on Sunday, but the defender is determined to return to winning ways on Wednesday when his team takes on Jose Mourinho's men at the Vicente Calderon.

"We are only thinking about our next game against Real Madrid. It's clear that we are all dreaming of ending all those years without beating them," Filipe Luis said to reporters.

"We have to respect them because they are the Liga leaders and have over 30 points more than us. They might be one of the best Real Madrid teams in history. We are playing at home, though, and will try to get the win.

"It is going to be very complicated, but we definitely don't lack the desire to beat them."

Wednesday's match at the Vicente Calderon kicks off at 22.00CET.
