Joao Felix: Madrid derby is one of the world's biggest games
Atletico Madrid face city rivals Real Madrid on Saturday and Portugal winger Joao Felix reckons it is one of world football's biggest games.
Atletico Madrid winger Joao Felix says he is relishing the chance to play in one of the biggest matches in world football against Real Madrid.
Joao Felix, 19, played in a pre-season friendly between the sides in New Jersey – which Atletico won 7-3.
However, Saturday's LaLiga clash at the Wanda Metropolitano will be the Portugal international's competitive Madrid derby debut.
Joao Felix: Excited for Madrid Derby
"I am very excited to play this game, which is one of the most important in football," he told LaLiga.
"I have already played during the pre-season, but it wasn't official. Now, it will be. I want to enjoy the game to the fullest.
"The fans will be very important for us, as they have been in other games. And they will help you more than ever."
