BALE WANTS WIN
Gareth Bale is quite confident that his team Real Madrid would be able to go through to the semi final round of the ongoing UEFA Champions League.
In the return leg of their quarter final tie on Tuesday, Real will be up against Borussia Dortmund. They have won the first leg by 3-0. So, they are in a very good position, but, things can still turn around considering the players Borussia has got.
Los Blancos had come across Borussia in the last season’s Champions League as well, not in the quarter final, but, in the semi final and they had ended up being knocked out after losing the return leg by a huge margin of 4-1.
The player who had hurt Real the most in that return leg last year was Robert Lewandowski. He was the man who had struck for Borussia all the 4 times and he will again be the danger for the men in white. He had not played in the previous match because of the suspension, but, now he is available.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Bale admitted the fact that Lewandowski would pose threat for his side, but, at the same time, he looked optimistic as well.
The Welshman was quoted saying “Robert has obviously been fantastic for his team in the recent times, but, rather than thinking about the opposition, we should focus on our own game. We will have to be spot on defence wise. We had done that pretty well in the first leg and hopefully, we repeat that in the return leg as well.”
When asked if Real would be looking to avenge last season’s lose, Bale said, “Yes off course, it’s the revenge time for us.”
Bale had however not experienced that defeat to Borussia as he was playing for Tottenham last season.
