Torres: We will die to reach Champions League final

Fernando Torres says Atletico Madrid will give everything to secure a place in their second Champions League final in three years.

Los Rojiblancos head into their semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night holding a 1-0 advantage thanks to Saul’s solo strike.

Torres, who returned to Atleti last year, was not at the club when they lost in the 2014 final to city rivals Real, but admits they will do whatever it takes to reach this year’s showpiece in Milan.

“Bayern are the best team we have played this season, but we will win this war,” he said.

“We are a team and we die for the next game.”

El Nino also claimed the club’s identity, thanks to coach Diego Simeone, gives them an advantage ahead of the trip to the Allianz Arena.

“The most important thing is that we know who we are we know we can beat anyone,” he continued.

“We have scored in almost every game this season and we must do so again against Bayern”.
