Ronaldo: UCL Is Real's Competition

Cristiano Ronaldo: UEFA Champions League is Real Madrid’s Competition

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 14, 2017 04:11 PM @KeeganKruger

After Los Blancos’ convincing 3-0 win against APOEL on Wednesday, four-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed that the UEFA Champion League is "Real Madrid’s competition".

Zidane: Why Ronaldo Is The Best In The World

The 32-year-old, who is yet to feature for the Spanish giants in La Liga this season due to a domestic ban, marked his return to the pitch by scoring two goals against the Cyprian's at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Portuguese star admitted that he and his teammates are ready to defend the trophy and will be taking it game by game.

"There's still a long way to go; let's go game by game. First, we have the group stage then we can see," Ronaldo told UEFA.com.

"We, of course, want to win this tournament. The Champions League is Real Madrid's competition, and we want to win it."

Ronaldo also said he was delighted to be back playing again and is happy with how the team started the new Champions League campaign.

"I'm delighted to be back playing," he added.

"This is a distinct competition and to start playing again, and scoring goals is very important for me. I helped the side and felt good about that.

"It was a game we needed to win; we played at home and wanted to start the Champions League well. I think the side were good; we know we were taking on a defensive outfit. We could've scored more, but in the end, it was a good result, and we've started off well, and we're happy with that."

Zidane: Real Are Short In One Position

We all know that as much as Real Madrid are on form, one thing is certain, they don't want to meet Barcelona. They know the will never pass through. Not team want to meet Barcelona cause they know exactly they cannot go through. now we are 4 point clear in La Liga which we all know that it will be that way till the end. Forget about Super league Madrid defeated Barcelona in both two legs. Barcelona was still trying to adapt to the philosophy of the new coach and now they have adapted well. Their winning record in all competitive games they played this far is a testimony. And once Dembele start to gel to Barca system of play, we gonna win every cup on offer. if it was Barca playing with that small team Madrid played with, we could've won by 8 goals. Barca will remain king of spain. Even though Madrid have won UEFA back to back, but every coach who win again Barca is great achievement, that's some coaches when they lose games with their team, they would say even Barcelona does lose which the recognised Barca as best team, never will you hear a coach from another league says even Madrid. Barca all the way.
