Courtois Targets Barca Scalp

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is confident that they can see off Barcelona in the Super Cup.

The Chelsea stopper returned to Atleti on loan for a third season, and is already focused on the season ahead in La Liga.

"The team's objective has to be to win another trophy," Courtois told reporters at a press conference. "In August [during the Super Cup tie with Barcelona] we can win another one.

"We should also fight for the top of the league, but it will be difficult [to break Barca and Real Madrid's hegemony].

"We have to try to get as far in the Champions League as we can this season. We saw Malaga reach the quarter-finals, so nearly reach the semi-finals, so we'll see if we can get there."

Regarding the state of the team, he added, "The team is all here and only missing Radamel (Falcao). I believe that the club is looking for other reinforcements in attack and I think we have the team to play well.

"I'm very happy because it was my desire to stay here and reach an agreement with Atletico for another year. The pre-season is hard, but it's important to compete and get to next June. I want to keep improving and go a step further."
