Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone talks up the threat of Real Betis ahead of their game in La Liga on Sunday evening.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is expecting a difficult test when his side take on Real Betis in La Liga this evening.

A win for Simeone's men would close the gap to just a point at the top of La Liga, but the Atleti boss is anticipating a tough game against Betis.

"Betis are a very good team that started well in the league and Thursday's result in Europe will give them a boost," Simeone told reporters.

"I imagine a tough game, it always is against Betis. We'll have to be very carefully against an opponent who has a lot of pace on the wings."

"We have to have a look who will be available because they have some knocks in defence."

Los Rojiblancos were beaten 1-0 by Espanyol last week.
