“We are very focused and we're going to give everything to win“, added the French striker.
“At this stage of the competition the psychological aspect is more important than tactics”, the Real Madrid manager revealed in an interview with the 'Champions' magazine.
Benzema's goal and a solid performance from Ancelotti's men were key to the victory over Bayern.
