Raul looking forward to huge Real Madrid week

Real Madrid will face Bayern Munich in Germany in the Champions League tomorrow, and this weekend they will face rivals Barcelona in a title-deciding clash.

Raul said: “I feel great. I’m available to the coach and I’m ready to play a big part in this huge week for the club.

“It’s a great week for a footballer – a Champions League knockout, followed by the Classico four days later. It’s a very easy week also. You don’t have to motivate yourself for such games.”

He added: “It’d be a huge blow if we were eliminated from Europe. We have confidence and a small advantage. We must go there to win, though it’s clear that Bayern are very dangerous at home.”
