Benzema: I want to dedicate this match to Amancio

Is this a historic evening? It’s an important night for us. I want to dedicate this match to our Honorary President Amancio, this victory to him. We played with character and goals and we want the Champions League. A very nice game for everyone. We started a little wrong. We knew Liverpool and their fans would push a lot, but after 15-20 minutes we saw Real Madrid.

– scoring a reversal at 0-2 in the 14th minute? You know football is always tough. They started the game well, better than us, but that’s what the big games look like. 2-0 after 14 minutes and we should have done more. We did it to the end.

– Vinicius’ goal made it 2-1 changed the dynamics of the match? Yes, sure, aiming can change your game. That’s what happened here.

– Greetings from Anfield to me and Modric? Great stadium, thanks to those fans. Also a big thank you to our audience [pokazuje na sektor gości]. As I always say, they are the twelfth player for us.

How much did I want to finally get to the Champions League? I played a little in this competition, two games, one off the bench, a quarter of an hour [śmiech]. The most important thing is always the same: I have to help my team with goals and assists too. I did it today.

– Organize my physical behavior and try to get out of the physical difficulties? This is what it looks like. I have an early season with a lot of games and after the World Cup I had some minor injuries. It is always difficult to level up. But I’m slowly getting better. I played a good game today and I’m moving forward [uśmiech].

Has Real Madrid already reached the quarter-finals? [uśmiech] A lot can happen in football. It’s good, but we have to play another big game at the Bernabéu.
