“You see the greatness of the club, the maturity of the players, who have a lot of experience, who are used to living in this competition. It’s also difficult to play against Atlético [Madrid], Sporting CP.

“The Champions League. There is a bit of nervousness. We’ll try to give our best, respect the history of Real Madrid and its players, but we’ve to try to impose our football, our rhythm, to try to win.”
