The Brazilian is confident he will be fit for Barcelona's final game of the season against Diego Simeone's men after suffering a foot injury against Real Madrid

Barcelona attacker Neymar is confident he will be fully fit for the clash with league leaders Atletico Madrid on the final day of the season.

The Brazil international suffered metatarsal damage to his left foot in the 2-1 Copa del Rey final defeat to Real Madrid and could face up to four weeks on the sidelines as a result.

Barca host Atletico at Camp Nou on May 17 in the final round of matches in La Liga and Neymar is confident he will be ready to play a part against Diego Simeone's men.

"I knew it would be a long while out, but you've always got that little bit of fear - firstly that you're out injured, which I don't like in any way, and then, of course, over the World Cup. But in three weeks I'll return and I hope to play in Barca's last game," he told Globo.

"It [the injury] was a little swelling which I've had for a while. The most that happened was in that game [the final]. It affected me a bit, it made it difficult to walk even after the game.

"It's horrible to be out, without training, without playing. You watch your team-mates playing, training, and you can do absolutely nothing. Doing nothing is the worst feeling for a player."
