Karim Benzema: “We deserve our place in the quarter finals”

Having scored a hat-trick to eliminate Paris Saint-Germain from the Champions League this evening, Karim Benzema spoke to RMC Sport.

“There were two matches: the first leg, where we weren’t good, and this one. We saw a different Real Madrid, with a high block and a lot of pressure. We pushed. We showed today that we are a big team, even if PSG are too, and that we deserve our place in the quarter finals.”

On PSG and Kylian Mbappé:

“They have world class players. They’re missing success, in the first leg they could have scored more goals. Kylian is disappointed, he wanted to shine. In the first leg he had a great game. In the second, he scored in the first half but after that we managed to silence him well.”
