Jules Koundé: “It’s a challenge facing Karim Benzema.”

Jules Koundé has the chance to face his compatriot Karim Benzema on Sunday as Sevilla take on Real Madrid in La Liga.

“It’s a good challenge against a fantastic striker who is having a magnificent season. I like to face the best strikers because that’s where you see what you’re missing or where you’re really at and I’m going to prepare as well as I can,” Koundé told Sevilla’s media channel.

“The team is 100 percent ready for Sunday. We have players back and that will help us prepare for the game with a lot of strength and with the objective of winning at home,” he added.
