Mario Suarez: This Atletico can beat anyone

The 25-year old is confident his side can match anyone on their day, and believes that the 4-1 European Super Cup win over Chelsea in August lifted the entire squad
Atletico Madrid midfielder Mario Suarez is delighted with life at the club, and believes that the current squad have the talent to beat any team in the world.

The European Super Cup holders currently sit joint-top of La Liga alongside Barcelona, and are yet to taste defeat this season.

And Suarez, who has started all but one of the side's domestic fixtures so far, insists the Vicente Calderon outfit can maintain their impressive form.

"We have the best squad that we've had for the last three years, and we know that if we do things right, in one game, we can beat anyone," the 25-year old told AS.

"Now we go to any pitch with great respect, but without worrying too much [about the opponent]. Knowing that if we are good we have a good chance of success."

Diego Simeone's charges' 4-1 Super Cup triumph over Chelsea earlier in the season had the world take note of Atletico's potential, and Suarez has now confirmed the victory provided a turning point for his side.

"It was a combination of circumstances that occurred that week," the Spaniard continued.

"We beat Athletic Bilbao 4-0 at home and then beat Chelsea like that. A super rival, who had won the Champions League and that is a [big] power economically. It was a morale booster."

Atletico Madrid will look to maintain their vein of form when they return to domestic duty on October 21 away to Sociedad.
