Atletico face Bayern Munich tonight. The budget used to put together Diego Simeone’s side pales into comparison next to the riches of the other three semi-finalists.

Luis said. “It is happening this year in the Premier League with Leicester. They are a modest team that are almost champions of the Premier League,” said the Brazilian international.

“In football these epic things happen because, although there is a difference in budget, we are the team that plays most as a team. We don’t have a superstar, we have a team where everyone runs and fights for the person next to them and that makes us stronger.”
