"The advantage we have from the first leg is not enough because Atalanta will go all out" said the forward.
Karim Benzema spoke via a virtual press conference from the press room at Real Madrid City the day before the Champions League match against Atalanta (Tuesday, 9 pm CET). The Frenchman discussed the second leg of the round of 16 tie: "We have to set out and play with a lot of ambition to win this game. It's a very important match for us. It's going to be difficult because the opposition are very good. We have the advantage from the first leg, but that's not enough because they're going to go all out".
"There is always pressure at this club. I'm here to provide assists and score goals. We have chances to score more goals in games and we work on it in training. We win games, but every year the opposition is stronger and drops deep. It's more difficult. Hopefully we'll get more goals".
"Eden hasn't had much luck since he has arrived. I'm sad for him because we know he's a top player. We can help each other a lot on the pitch. He wants to show that he's a star and we're here to help him. I hope he gets better soon because we need him".
Haaland as reinforcement
"I'm not going to talk about a player who is not at the club. Every year we talk about strikers who could score goals for Real Madrid. He's a young player who scores a lot of goals. He has to work hard to help his team".
Cristiano Ronaldo
"We've done a lot of things with Cristiano: goals, assists... But that was three years ago. Cristiano plays for another team. I'm not the president or the coach and I don't know if Cristiano is happy at Juve. I would love to play with him and he's a player who scores goals. I can't tell you anything else".
