Karim Benzema

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema says his side ‘will do something magical’ to reach the Champions League final. 

Madrid suffered a 4-3 loss to Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night. City put on a dominant display and found themselves 2-0 up inside 11 minutes before Benzema gave Madrid hope with a goal before halftime.

“A defeat is never good,” Benzema told Movistar.

“The most important thing is we never gave up until the end… Now we have to go to the Bernabeu. We’ll need the fans like never before. We’ll do something magical, which is to win.”

Santiago Bernabeu has already hosted two dramatic games in these Champions League knockout stages. They overturned a 1-0 first-leg loss at Paris Saint-Germain in the round-of-16, Benzema scoring a hat trick in a 3-1 home win.
