Real Madrid’s German midfielder Toni Kroos believes that his team has faced the most difficult possible confrontation in the round of sixteen of the European Champions League, but he is enjoying the opportunity to face Paris Saint-Germain.
At first, the draw for the round of sixteen of the Champions League, which took place on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland, pitted Real Madrid against Benfica of Portugal, but due to a technical error the draw was returned, so that the leaders of the Spanish League fell in a strong confrontation against Saint Germain.
“We have a very interesting opponent in the next round, I think he is the toughest opponent out of the five candidates to face us,” Cross said in a video recording on the Instagram photo-sharing network on Tuesday.
He added: “These are the matches that we play for, and we are looking forward to these matches with a lot of potential on the field, to see what happens, in the end we are Madrid.”
Real ousted Saint-Germain in the last meeting between them in the round of 16 of the 2017-2018 Champions League season, but the French club excelled in the other two matches in the 1992-1993 and 1993-1994 seasons in the European Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup.
“We always look forward to these kinds of matches and we have great confidence in reaching the quarter-finals,” Kroos said.
He added: We are doing very well, our focus at the moment is on the league and we have a lot of matches left before facing the Champions League.
“The most important thing now is to continue what we are doing in the upcoming matches, and continue to collect the points that bring us closer to our goal of winning the league title at the end of the season,” he stressed.
Kroos concluded by saying: This is the most important thing and we have to focus on that and then the Champions League, but when his time comes.
