Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa believes that the team have been "amazing" this year, as they look to win the Spanish league title and fight for Champions League glory against their neighbours.

The Atleti overpowered Chelsea in the semi-final last night, to set up a date with rivals Real Madrid in the final in Lisbon on 24th May.

Their hope of winning the domestic title is also on track as they prepare to take on Levante at the weekend, followed by two matches against Malaga and Barcelona later this month.

The 25-year-old, who has been instrumental in the team's success this year, having scored 27 goals in 33 league matches, feels that his side deserve to be where they are.


"We've done everything to be in the final", Costa told FIFA's official site.

"The team has been amazing.

"We justly deserve to be in the final."

The Brazil-born Spain striker scored from the spot in the 60th minute as his team won the match 3-1 against Jose Mourinho's men on the night.
