Speaking to the media ahead of Real Madrid’s clash with PSG, striker Karim Benzema gave his thoughts on the game and opposition in quotes transcribed by AS.
“PSG’s style of play is difficult to play against. We will have to wait and be patient. But for me, they have a great team.”
Confident of beating PSG?
“We’ll see if we can win, we’re here to play a good game. We have to be 100% on the pitch and really show what we can do.”
Will you play against PSG?
“I feel much better. We have a training session now to see how I feel and see if I can play the game.”
“He’s an extraordinary player, people expect a lot of goals from him but I’ve seen what he’s capable of.”
“Neymar is a top player, I don’t know if he’s 100%, but it’s better for them if he plays. But a game does not depend on a player. Neymar is like Messi, a very good player, very strong.”
“It’s obviously a very big game, playing against Kylian is special. Everyone knows that one day he could join Madrid but the most important thing is to win.”
On finishing his career in Ligue 1
“I’m focused on Madrid. It is too early to talk about ending up in France. For me, Madrid is the best team in the world.”
