Champions League: Real Madrid are not afraid of PSG says Benzema

On Sunday, Real Madrid CF won their first trophy of the season after defeating Athletic Club in the Supercopa de Espana final. Manager Carlo Ancelotti has issued a warning to competitors saying that they are determined to fight for all remaining trophies, and striker Karim Benzema has said that they are not afraid to face Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.

Real Madrid are currently on top of the La Liga table, and are still in contention for the Copa del Rey. More importantly, they are through to the last 16 of the Champions League, which is a competition that holds a special place in every Madridista’s heart.

The 13-time European Champions and Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain were drawn against each other in what is arguably the most anticipated fixture in the round-of-16. Benzema knows that PSG are desperate for European glory, but he told France Football that even though they would have preferred to face another team this early in the knockout stage, they are confident about beating the French giants.

“If you want to reach the end you have to beat everybody. When we go to France to play that game against Paris, we’ll be going to win,” he said, as quoted by Football Espana.
