When asked if he thought that Liverpool were a good draw he responded, "Is not a good draw or a bad draw."

"It doesn’t matter if they are in bad form in their league, because people can say the same about us that ‘we are at the bottom of the abyss' and what not but look at us we are still here in the Champions League no?"

Currently, Real Madrid sit in third place in La Liga behind league leaders Atletico Madrid and bitter rivals Barcelona. 

"It is going to be a great match between two sides that have many Champions League trophies between them."
