TONI KROOS: FANS WILL BE CRUCIAL AGAINST WOLFSBURG
Real Madrid midfielder, Toni Kroos says Real Madrid fans will be crucial if the Los Blancos are to overturn a 2-0 deficit at the Santiago Bernabeu in the UEFA Champions League clash with Wolfsburg next week.
“I’m hoping for total support. I’m certain that we will get it. We hope that playing at home will give us an advantage and for that we will need the backing of the fans, those who get behind us, who create atmosphere,” Kroos told reporters.
Toni Kroos didn’t play the match against SD Eibar in the 4-0 victory where his team mate, Christiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 30+ goals in six consecutive La Liga season.
“I am convinced that they will be there and in fine voice. Above all, I hope we have the opportunity to qualify in this next game. We will give everything for them,” Kross continued.
He went on to say the plan would be to score an early goal in the match. He proposed the team attacks Wolfsburg tirelessly until they turn the deficit.
According to Toni Kroos: “It will be important to get the upper hand early on. We don’t want it to still be 0-0 at half time. We have to play attacking football, without doubt, but we have to play wisely. We have to keep this in mind and not lose our heads. If that does happen, they will be able to get a goal on the counter and that would not be good. It’s important to have a good game on Tuesday, to all be united. We have to give everything.”
The German central midfielder has played all UEFA Champions League matches but one in the match against Malmo FF December last year. He has just one goal to his credit this season in the European tournament in the second leg match against PSG.
