Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and striker Karim Benzema have reacted, following 2-0 Victory over Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday night at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
Two first-half goals from the striker, Karim Benzema, ensured Los Blancos secured a spot in the champions league’s knockout stage.
Zidane has reacted after achieving the feat, describing it as the club’s most complete game of the season, while Benzema stated it was a challenging game.
“This was the objective: to finish first,” Zidane said as quoted by Marca after the game.
We played a spectacular game, from the first minute to the last. We interpreted the game really well.
“I think this was the most complete game of the season. I have been a player, and it’s impossible to play like this all the time.
“I’m happy for the players because they are the most important thing. I’m fighting with them, and I’m happy for them. It was a good game.”
On his part, Benzema said, “It was a challenging game. “We started well. We were eager to win and to show we are the best and that we were going to work together to win this game.
“When we give everything on the pitch, we get goals, and we could have got more. If we always play like today.”
Real Madrid have struggled for form recently and are happy to advance to the next stage of the champions league. This weekend will present another tough task for Zidane’s side as they face Atletico Madrid in the Spanish La Liga on Saturday.
