Benzema – Everybody wants to beat Madrid

Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema

Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema says he is expecting a tough game against Ajax, although they have done well against them in meetings.The two sides have met in the Champions League for the past two seasons, with Real Madrid winning each of the four games without conceding a goal, but Benzema believes they have to remain focused.“Each year the team changes; the mindset isn’t the same,” he said. “We know that it will be hard against Ajax, because everybody wants to beat Real Madrid.“That always happens; we must prepare the game well and show our level.“We know Ajax, we’ve played against them a lot in recent years. It won’t be easy, because all games are difficult, but we have to go to win this very important match.”Last season the French striker scored one of the goals as Madrid beat Ajax 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
