Arjen Robben has told AS that Liverpool don’t play good enough football to overcome Real Madrid in their last sixteen encounter of the Champions League.

“I have a lot of desire to beat Liverpool. They are a very strong side but when I was Chelsea, I did not like playing against them. I prefer to play Manchester United or Arsenal, because Liverpool are not a team who know how to play good football. They are very physical, they work and run a lot and they are tactically very well prepared.”

“Madrid are now in the best form of the season, but we must be relaxed as there’s already too much talk of this game.”

“I don’t think it will be a problem to play the return leg at Anfield because a lot will depend on the first leg. It is imperative to win here [at the Bernabeu] and avoid conceding any goals so that we don’t suffer there.”

When asked whether Liverpool were a one man team when Steven Gerrard plays, Robben said:

“[Gerrard] is one of the best midfielders in the world, perhaps the best in the Premier League. He has been at Anfield all his career and in that sense, he is similar to Raul. Neither have ever played for any other club.”

“But Liverpool are not a one-man team. They have other quality players like Xabi Alonso, who I like a lot, and Fernando Torres, who can score at any given moment.”

“The truth is that it doesn’t matter whether or not Gerrard plays because we only rely on ourselves to progress to the next round.”
