Atletico Madrid midfielder Costinha has urged his team-mates to make one final effort to ensure the club do not miss out on European football next season.

Atletico are currently sixth in the Primera Liga standings and know if they win their final two games against Celta Vigo and Osasuna they will be sure of a UEFA Cup spot. But with in-form Villarreal just a point behind in seventh having won their last six league matches, Atletico know they can ill-afford any slip-ups.

"We have spent all of the season in the European places and now we are faced with two complicated games which we intend to win," said Costinha. The important thing is that we depend on ourselves."
