Carvajal: "Wolfsburg usually press you very high up and it will be an uncomfortable match"

“We have to go out as strong as possible, without thinking of the second-leg”, added the fullback.
Dani Carvajal is one of the members of the squad who knows Wolfsburg the best. He played against them during his season with Bayer Leverkusen and he analysed the Champions League opponents for Realmadrid TV and Realmadrid.com: “I played there twice, I think I remember. Once in the league and once in the Cup. Both times we left with nothing, because they beat us in the two games. It's a difficult ground to play at, they pressure a lot. They usually press you very high up. I'm sure it will be an uncomfortable match”.

“We're going there thinking that it's only a game. We're going to win, not thinking about the second-leg at our stadium. We have to go out as strong as possible for the first half hour, try to get on top of the opposition and to get a goals. We know that scoring away from home is very important so we'll go for it”.

The Wolfsburg fans
“They'll fill the ground early, I’m sure of that, they're going to be on top of the game. We have to raise above all this and try to put in a big performance and think that it's just eleven against eleven and try to win”.

The importance of not conceding
“It's very important to not concede goals. Against Roma we were able to keep clean sheets in both games. The only one where we conceded was against Shakhtar in a strange 20 minutes. This is the key to the Champions League: if you don't concede, you have half a foot in the next stage”.

Is the eleventh going through Germany?
“I hope so, the road would be to eliminate Wolfsburg and go on to win the eleventh. At the moment we're thinking about this tie, and it's going to be difficult. It’s not just any team that makes it to the quarter-finals. We'll try to do our best to be in the semi-finals, one step away from the final in Milan”.
