After losing two late goals in the first match before COVID-19, appearing in Europe, Los Merengues know that they must score at least two goals at the Etihad Stadium to have a chance of progressing to the quarter-finals.
Everything is possible for Los Merengues
After securing the LaLiga title with one match in the reserve, Zinedine Zidane relaxed and enjoyed the final internal adjustment of the calendar against Leganes. With awareness now turning to Real Madrid’s Champions League match with Manchester City, Raphael Varane made it clear that everything is possible. After losing two late goals in the first match before COVID-19, appearing in Europe, Los Merengues know that they must score at least two goals at the Etihad Stadium to have a chance of progressing to the quarter-finals. “This is Real, and everything is possible. There is always hope, even if the situation is difficult,” Raphael explained in an interview. “When you wear this shirt, you are responsible. We know that we will have a challenging game, but we will approach it with exceptional hunger.
Real will fight to the end
“It’s a debt we owe to our supporters, we cannot predict the result, but we will battle to the end”. Karim Benzema may be one of the footballers influenced by the cancellation of the 2020 release of Ballon d’Or. Still, Varane hastened to praise the performances of his former international team-mate. “I wouldn’t say it was the best season of his career, but that’s only because I’ve known him for a long time. I am glad to see him so radiant and happy. He is at the very top of his game in a difficult position. He took his role as a leader of the attack. “Zidane has added another trophy to his collection, and Varane has made it clear what impact the former Bordeaux midfielder has had on the team. He has that special ability to make the impossible possible, and his career is exceptional,” he confirmed.
“He is an idol of inspiration for everyone; his soul as a player is always there. He doesn’t have to say too much, and when he does it with the words that jousts with players, that needle them, it’s his way of training.”
