"People expect perfection because we're the best team in Europe", insisted the American.
Trey Thompkins spoke to Realmadrid TV to offer this thoughts ahead of Thursday's match-up against Barcelona (8:45pm CET). The American said: "I'm expecting a tough game against Barcelona, they'll come here and play hard, show energy and passion and we'll have to match them on those fronts".  

"The key to being successful will be our defense and making sure that they aren't allowed any easy shots. If we do that, we'll be in with a chance of winning. We'll have to be at our battling best, that's the sort of team we are. We all fight together and it'll need to be the same on Thursday. Every single day is important".

Training hard
"On some days you have to train hard and then you rest up on others, but our coaches are doing a good job to make sure that we've got the energy and are ready for Thursday. People expect perfection and the very best from us. We're the best team in Europe, that's all that matters and we always have to be the best".
