Barcelona will be perfect at Atletico, warns Pinto

Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Pinto believes the side will be "perfect" in the second leg of his its Champions League quarterfinal with Atletico Madrid.

The two teams, who are also challenging each other at the top of La Liga, meet in the Vicente Calderon to conclude the last-eight tie after last week's 1-1 draw at Camp Nou.

And Pinto doesn't think there is much between the two teams as he is anticipating another tight affair between the two Spanish giants on Wednesday.

"[The first-leg] was a really tough game, we gave our all. But in the return leg, we’ll be perfect," the 38-year-old told Barca TV.

"It will be very close, like it was here. The small details will make all the difference."

The shot-stopper was then asked about the off-field difficulties facing his team, following the transfer ban Barca was recently handed by FIFA, and he admitted that the accusations could be harming the Catalans.

"We’re trying to keep out of it all, and it’s true there is a strange atmosphere with some odd things going on, some really odd things.

"We are staying focused and trying to let these things not affect us in any way, but it hurts what’s happening to the club."
