Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone believes that his side will face an improving Real Madrid team on Wednesday.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has insisted that Real Madrid have improved since he led his side to a 1-0 league victory over their rivals in September.

Simeone's team take on Carlo Ancelotti's men on Wednesday night and the Atletico boss expects a much tougher test in the Copa del Rey semi-final first-leg.

"When we faced Madrid, in week six of the league, they'd had very few games with their coach," Simeone told reporters.

"They've got better and have developed a 4-3-3 that works well for the attackers they've got. There's no doubt they're better now."

Real Madrid have not lost in any competition since the end of October.
