Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone says he won't be watching Real Madrid tonight.

Victory over Real Sociedad last night saw Atletico go clear at the top of the table by four points with two games to play.

Real Madrid can cut the lead to one point if they win against Granad tonight and Simeone said: "I already said the other day, if last week I was nervous and anxious this more, like anyone who lives from the passion of this sport. I prefer not to watch them and find out after what happened."

The Argentine also insists Luis Suarez will prove his value in these final crunch moments.

He added: "For us he is decisive and for these two remaining days he will have what he is looking for, because football ends up paying for effort and he is making a great effort working as a block with the team. In these two remaining dates he will be where he wants, which is close to the goal."
