Goalkeeper Pepe Reina has stated his determination and desire to claim a maiden victory at Real Madrid’s Benabeu stadium.

The former Barcelona keeper comes from an Atletico Madrid supporting family, so he is unlikely to receive a warm welcome from the Real fans.

“I have yet to win in the Bernabeu. In all the time I’ve played against them, I think I’ve managed only two draws,” he said.

“But then of course it’s a really tough place to get a result. That’s always been the case. When my dad played against them in the 60s and 70s it was the same story. He also had a bad record against them.”

“It won’t be easy but we know we can do it, and that would be great for me and my family.”

“Real are one of the best clubs in the world and if we did go out against them there would be no shame in it. But we will be doing our utmost to make sure that doesn’t happen and I’m confident we can reach the quarter-finals.”

“Every player wants to play in these massive games, and we feel we can do well there.”
