Benitez: We must be careful

The Spaniard said: “We must be careful. We played well on Saturday and everyone was happy, but we are playing a team which plays good football.

“Do not think that this is an easy game because they are bottom of the group.

“They have good players, every team in this competition has good players who can win games, so we must not think this is three points already.

“But now we face a team who are bottom of the group knowing it is hard for them to qualify.

“They are playing without very much pressure, but they will want to attack and to show what they can do.

“Always teams like this have quality, and they can play better football from this position. We must be focused on the fact that if we win we can qualify.

“We would like to start the game as we did at home to Galatasaray, with a quick tempo that put us in control.

“It was the same against Villa, the way we started with our pace and goals, gave us command.

“If we can start like that against Bordeaux the task will become more controllable.

“Then you can use the quality of your own players. But if they play like they usually do away from home, with just one main striker, then we know it will be difficult and we must be careful not to get caught on the counter-attack.

“They have pace and can be dangerous. But we must play with our high tempo and that will put us into a strong position.

“The first thing is to win, it is important to finish first in the group and we would need to beat PSV Eindhoven in our next match to be sure of that.”
