Austria Vienna coach Nenad Bjelica has said that Atletico Madrid has what it takes to win the UEFA Champions League after Los Colchoneros thrashed his team, 4-0, at the Vicente Calderon on Wednesday. Diego Simeone’s men have already won Group G with two games to spare, having reached a maximum 12 points from four games. Zenit St. Petersburg is currently second with 5 points, one ahead of third-place FC Porto.

“They are three sizes bigger than us,” Bjelica said. “We don't have their quality and it's not easy to compete against such an attacking team. I think they're real candidates to win the Champions League. They're going to have chances to win the trophy and I would like them to do that. This competition will be won by the best side and Atletico are playing at a high level. They're going to fight till the end in their league and they could win the UEFA Champions League with some luck.”
