Alonso: Real Madrid Can Win The Champions League
Xabi Alonso is confident that Real Madrid can conquer Europe this term and win the Champions League trophy for the tenth time in a final that will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The former Liverpool playmaker recognised that the path for Los Merengues will be tough because of the level of opposition that they are likely to face on the way.
Alonso believes that the squad will raise their game and the fact that the prize at the end would mean a party at home is even more of a reason to progress.
"I think we can win. It is very hard to win the Champions League because you always end up facing complicated opponents along the way," he was quoted as saying by the club's official website.
"I think it's possible for us to win if we stay focused and have a little luck. The fact that the final will take place at the Bernabeu motivates us even more."
