Varane, French central of the Real
Madrid, recognized the superiority of Chelsea in the match on Wednesday and described as “determining the goal of Karim” Benzema that gave the white team a draw (1-1) and that allows them to face the return with hope of success in London.
“We have seen two games. They started very well, with a lot of pressure and intensity. They pressured us well, they played very vertical, they created a lot of danger. With the goal of Karim we have entered the game from that moment, we have controlled the rhythm we wanted better and the second half was better ”, he analyzed in Movistar +.
“In a match like this, the goal of Karim, the dynamics have changed. We know its quality and it helps us a lot ”, he said of Benzema, who signed a great goal.
Varane drew conclusions to face the return in Stamford Bridge in a different way: “We have not found a way to break the pressure of the rival and they have annoyed us. We have to learn from the start of the game for the return leg ”.
“At this point in the competition the physical will be very important but also the mental. We are going there to win and despite playing in their field to play up, “he added.
Finally, he highlighted a great stop of Thibaut Courtois at the beginning of the meeting. “It was a very important save at the beginning of the game. He is having a very good season. It helped us a lot to continue in the game, “he said.
