Real Madrid star Isco have had something to say about the Madrid derby ahead of Champions League clash. Although Real Madrid won last to Champions League titles against City rivals, but he still thinks that clash against Atletico Madrid will be very close. Real Madrid and Isco set for another Champions League title, but they need to go through Atleti to create history. Isco have spent four years at Real Madrid and in those four years, Real Madrid have faced Atletico Madrid in this competition.
During an interview with Codere Apuestas, Isco said “Atletico are a very difficult team and the two legged matches make it even more difficult. I have been in Madrid for four years and in each of the four we have faced them in the Champions League.”
“Hopefully the outcome will be the same as in previous years, but they will be really keen to beat us after the two Champions Leagues that we have won. Atletico are a very good team, they have shown that. They compete very well and it is going to be a very close tie.”
