Real Madrid and PSG will meet in the knockout stages of the Champions League. Nothing to scare Karim Benzema.
Chance, but also a huge UEFA bug, put Paris Saint-Germain on the road to Real Madrid in the Champions League, when initially Karim Benzema and his teammates were to face Benfica, while PSG had Manchester United on its way. A month before the first of the two matches between the two European giants, KB9 evokes in L’Equipe these clashes of C1, but given his experience at the highest continental level with the Merengue the former player of Olympique Lyonnais admits not not really sweat profusely before crossing Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Lionel Messi. For the Madrid and Les Bleus striker, there is no reason for the White House players to be impressed, and in order to win the Champions League you have to go through this kind of shock anyway. Karim Benzema is not being clever, but he is putting things back in place.

Real Madrid will not come with a gun to the Parc des Princes in the first leg, but with the stated desire to already take a big option on qualification for the quarter-finals of the C1. ” If you want to go to the end, you have to beat all the teams. Afterwards, we would have liked another draw, that’s for sure. PSG are among the favorites but there is no fear. It’s two football matches. We want to qualify, we want to go all the way. With Real Madrid, I came back many times, it’s nothing new. And my supporters in France watch me every weekend. I don’t need to come to France and show anything. But in any case, when we go to France to play this match against Paris, it will be to win “, warns Karim Benzema, determined to shine in the jersey of Real Madrid in France.
