Raphael Varane insisted that “The best team will win” between Real Madrid and Manchester City. He also stated “small details” will play an important part in the game. Madrid travel to Manchester for their second leg in UEFA Champions League.
Real Madrid will try to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Manchester City. Isco, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne were the scorers of their previous meeting.
In an Interview Varane said, “We want to win every day, we’re Real Madrid. We want to win everything possible and gain more confidence that way. We haven’t had games to play beforehand, so we have time to prepare ourselves. The best team on the day will win. We’ll go into [the game] with hunger to win and the necessary determination.”
“[It will be] a difficult game against a very good team. The first leg was a top-quality game, with pressing from both teams. “It was decided by the small details. [Real Madrid and City are] two teams that like to have the ball, are very intense and that require lots of concentration. These are the best games in the Champions League – the ones that are decided by very little. They are why we love this competition,” added Varane.
Real Madrid won three European Cups in a row during Zidane’s first spell in charge.
Varane also said, “We know what we’ve achieved in recent years is something exceptional,” he continued. “What we have to do is carry this experience with us and know that the small details make the difference in big games. Now, we’re a bit more relaxed, but we have the same determination and we know the traps we have to avoid. We have years of experience, but it’s hard to win every game, repeat victories and always be at the top.”
