Atalanta attacker Luis Muriel says they're ready for Champions League opponents Real Madrid.

La Dea warmed up for the clash with a 4-2 win against Napoli.

“It was very important that we win today and the victory could be crucial in the race for the Champions League places, it also gives us a big boost for Wednesday's game with Real Madrid," Muriel told Sky Italia.

"We've got it into our heads that we want a run of victories in Serie A to make up for dropping points earlier in the season, so we gave our all.

“If we can play with this balance, this attacking verve, creating this many chances, then we can make life very difficult for Real Madrid.

“We want to make the most of this unique opportunity and prove that we are up to the task."
