Radamel Falcao has stoked the fires ahead of this weekend's Madrid derby as he aims to further upset the reigning La Liga champions' title defence and continue his imperious form for Atletico.

The 26-year-old has already scored 14 times for Diego Simeone's team, leaving them second in La Liga, just three points behind Barcelona and eight ahead of rivals Real Madrid.

With a third of the season complete, Atletico have managed to upset the balance, something Falcao hopes can be maintained to the end of the campaign.

"To finish above our main opponent [Real Madrid] would be quite significant for everyone," he told Goal.com. "Our fans would be delighted if we managed to do so this season. However, as players we don't have this as our target. We want to top La Liga but we don't look at Real Madrid or ourselves, we just think about the next game."
