Real Madrid are looking to cap a good week with a win in Germany when they travel to take on Wolfsburg in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final, the match coming immediately after a 2 – 1 win over arch rivals Barcelona.

Defender Danny Carvajal was a key figure in the win over Barca and speaking to the Real Madrid website, he noted that they expected a difficult match and got just that and while at it played well for the win.

He is particularly elated that his team did not give up in the game against Barca and hopes they can build on it with another win in Germany and admits they will be touring Wolfsburg with renewed energy.

“We knew it would be difficult. The team has been great. We never let our heads drop and the team felt comfortable throughout the game. We stood up tall, looked for more and didn’t settle for the draw”.

“The coach’s ideas were really good. You have to play to win in a Clásico and today we go away with renewed strength. We thank the fans for their support and the inspiration they give us in every game. Now we travel to Germany and will go all out for the win,” he said.
