Felipe Luis wary of depleted Barca

Atletico Madrid full-back Felipe Luis is wary of facing Barcelona on Saturday, despite the defending champions' depleted squad.

The Catalans are set to be without Claudio Bravo and Gerard Pique for the big early-season meeting at Vicente Calderon.

However, Felipe Luis, who has declared himself fit for the game, insists that Barcelona remain favourites to take the three points.

"Barcelona have only recently won every trophy there is to win and their squad is practically the same," the Brazil international was quoted as saying by AS.

"However many players they have out injured, their squad is big enough for them to go into any match as the favourites.

"We're going into the game with the advantage of being at home, that's important and they know it. It's a great game for the viewing public and may the best team win.

"We are in a great moment of form; we are full of confidence after two wins without conceding any. That's the path we want to follow. As always, it will be decided by small details."
