Off To Turin & An Interview With Toni

4 May

SatelliteLos Blancos headed off to Italy where they will face Juventus tomorrow in the Champions League.

Juve confirmed on Saturday that they had won their fourth consecutive Scudetto. Let’s hope that they had a huge party and that Drunk!Pirlo made an appearance and they’re hella hungover for the match tomorrow. I’m aware that ain’t gonna happen, but a girl can dream, right?

About 100 fans were there to greet them at the airport and over 200 more at the Golden Palace hotel which will be their home base while in Turin. The team will train at Juventus Stadium this evening.

People went especially crazy for Cristiano, as you would expect.

Call Ups


The following players were called up for the match – no Benz after all.

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
Defenders: Varane, Ramos, Pepe, Coentrão, Carvajal, Arbeloa, Marcelo and Nacho.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Bale, Lucas Silva, Isco and Illarra.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesé and Chicharito.

Kroos: “Ancelotti knows Juventus well and we’ll be making use of our strengths”

Our goal is to win back-to-back Champions League titles”, said the German.

Toni Kroos looked over Real Madrid’s current form with a view to the Champions League semi-final clash against Juventus. During an interview with Mahou, the German midfielder stated: “Juventus know how to defend well but are also capable of making quick transitions. We’ll adapt to that and I hope that with the strengths we have we’ll be able to get through”.

“I think we can do well against this opponent. We have an Italian manager who knows Juventus well. As such, we’ll be able to make even more use of our strengths”.

Confidence
“Obviously there is a pressure within the club to win games and titles, but I don’t put any pressure on myself because I’m confident that we have enough quality”.

Reaching the final
“We have to take it one step at a time. We have progressed well up until this point and are now through to the semi-finals, among the four best teams in Europe, which is a great achievement. We are going to do everything we can to get to the final but are well aware that no team has ever managed to win back-to-back titles before. That is our main goal this year”.

– Lozil
