Benzema continues to impress him
Elsewhere, Benzema refuses to get caught up in any mind games, insisting that Real Madrid will not lose focus against the defending champions at the Bernabéu:
“The key is to play as in the first leg, to get into the match and play to win,” he said. “We have to show that we want to go to the semi-finals.”
Benzema has now scored 37 goals and assisted 13 in 37 games in all competitions this season, a record you would normally expect to see from someone like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.
