Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone keen to face Barcelona duo

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone reveals that he hopes both Lionel Messi and Neymar play in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup for Barcelona.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has revealed that he is looking forward to facing both Lionel Messi and Neymar in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup with Barcelona.

The Argentinian international has been named in the squad after overcoming injury, but it is unclear at this stage as to whether or not he will play.

Simeone had admitted that he hopes he will, as the sight of seeing both Messi and Neymar on the pitch would be good for the "spectacle".

"I hope Messi and Neymar both play, for the good of the spectacle, but they have a lot of good players and it's the coach who will decide," he said in his press conference.

The tie is finely poised after the first leg, with the two teams level at 1-1 ahead of their meeting at the Camp Nou.
