LIGA - Benzema on European title hopes: we have a strong side
Real Madrid's Karim Benzema stated on Tuesday that no one should be afraid of them as they prepare for their current Champions League campaign, which begins this week against Inter Milan.
Benzema, 33, has been in sensational form for Real Madrid under new coach Carlo Ancelotti, scoring five goals and setting up four more in four La Liga games.
Ahead of Wednesday's encounter at the San Siro, Benzema feels they have what it takes to go all the way this time.
"The Champions League is the highest level of competition, where the pressure is at its very highest, and it's not like we're behind the other teams," said Benzema.
"Every team has its strengths, any team could win, but in the end when we're playing each other on the pitch there are no favourites -- anyone can beat anyone.
"We're here, we have a strong side and we're going to fight to win this Champions League."
