Real Madrid is the leader, after two victories in two matches, in the challenging group D of the Champions League, which it was classified in, together with Manchester City, Ájax of Amsterdam and Borussia Dortmund. The German team will be the white team’s next opponent. Sami Khedira talked about the difficulty of classification in an interview on Bwin’s website: “I think that Dortmund is a great team, but so is Manchester City. They made it very difficult for us in the first game, and we only won in the last minute. I believe that the three teams—including Ajax, even though they are not as highly ranked—are great teams. That’s why we can’t say that we should only focus on Borussia. But if we win in Dortmund, it’s clear that we will have taken a big step towards classification as first in the group.”

Real Madrid’s next opponent is the current champion of the Bundesliga. The Madrid midfielder is aware of the quality of the German team: “It is a compact team, a block. They play at a great pace for the 90 minutes and are very disciplined tactically. Also, despite being a team without much experience in the Champions League, they have a lot of quality, especially with offence. I think Dortmund have a very good team.”

About the atmosphere in the stadium, he said: “I know it from my time in Stuttgart, when we played there. It’s a special time, because the atmosphere is unique in Germany. And playing in Signal Iduna Park is always nice, because it has a special atmosphere, an atmosphere of Champions.”

Khedira also talked about Özil, his teammate on Real Madrid and on the national team: “He is one of the best players in the world now. His position is among the best. He could still improve in certain aspects. He knows it, and I also tell him that sincerely as a friend. But I think that, with the quality he has, he is among the best in the world.”

Concerning the chance to score a goal against Borussia, Khedira admitted: “I always want to, but I don’t think it’s so easy. Last year I was lucky enough to have the experience of scoring a goal in the Champions, and of course I would be thrilled to be able to score a winning goal. And if it is in Dortmund, in Germany, that’s even better."

Lastly, he talked about how happy he is in Madrid. “I like it a lot. Naturally, it is different than Germany. But here the weather is better and it allows you to do more things outside in your free time. You can walk around the city a lot, get together with friends and that’s why I feel very comfortable in Madrid.”
