Real Madrid's tails are high at the moment after they dismantled FC Zurich 5-2 in Tuesday's Champions League tie, and Alvaro Arbeloa has stated his belief that los Blancos should be playing attractive, attacking football.
"With the players we have, we can't play any other way," the full-back explained to the club's official website,realmadrid.com.
"The style we have is to attack and look for the opponent's goal - we have the players to play this type of football and a coach whose philosophy is to keep possession and play an offensive game.
"We are basing our game on this, but it's clear that, as a team, we have deficiencies too and we are working on them."
The former Liverpool full-back then turned to the topic of the Champions League, and revealed that the team are already dreaming of lifting the trophy on their home patch next May.
"Winning the Champions League is not easy. You cannot have a bad night, nor can you afford to be anything other than 100 per cent. We know that there is a greater responsibility [to win] because the final is in our stadium.
"We are all dreaming of making it to that day, playing in the final and winning it."
