New Delhi: With Catalan giants Barcelona and Atletico Madrid set for a classic Copa del Rey semi-final clash on Wednesday, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has reiterated that his side will ‘not hold back’ from the team headed by Diego Simeone.

Talking about the impending game, Luis Enrique said, “I expect a very complicated tie. They have always caused us problems. We have very clear what our aim is. We want to win our first game.”

Asked whether he would be submitted to change his style according to Diego Simeone’s, Enrique said, “I don’t think Simeone (Diego) or I will change our style. They are a difficult rival for us just as we are for them.”

Barcelona will play with Atletico without its midfielders Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets who are sidelined due to injury. 

It would also be interesting to see whether Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, two star-studded players often talked-about for their performances, emerge as the lone-ranger for their team. 

Barcelona will play against Atletico Madrid at 1:30 AM Indian Standard Time on Thursday.
