We’ll start focusing on our Champions League match today. We know it will be cold in Moscow, but we will overcome that to try to win the game.” Benzema added.
We’re about to play a championship that’s very important to us again this week. We all know what’s at stake in the UCL and it will be essential to earn a good result on the road. We will adapt to the Moscow climate,” said Alonso.
This confidence is obviously isn’t something out of the ordinary considering Madrid have really been getting great results this season bar against Barcelona, which pretty much showed their strength.
