Toni Kroos said in a press statement: “Champions League matches are always special for us. It’s part of the history of this club, you always have to give your 200% in the Champions League when you play for Real Madrid.
And he continued: “Winning the Champions League requires you to have quality and it is present in this team, but it is always better not to come back in every match, so we prefer to win calmly, to be honest, it is always good to keep confidence if you lose 0: 1 or 0:2. There is always a strong belief that we can return.”
The German star said in his speech: “Vinicius has not yet reached the top of his level, he will give more to Real Madrid when we suffered a little against Liverpool after the 0-2 score. His first goal was very important, he did everything himself, without places, this goal, it gave life to the whole team.”
He added: “Before the match against Liverpool we were in good shape and I think we had a good match, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be favorites tomorrow. We know we have a tough opponent ahead of us and as always, it will be very difficult for us.”
And he concluded: “Derby is important, special for our fans, and therefore we have to perform strongly, so this is a special match, but it is not special, because you know that you come from a special match, such as the one on Tuesday, and that there is another special match coming up next Thursday, and that’s it.” adverb.”
