Real Madrid defender Daniel Carvajal says that the team will not be complacent due to their first leg lead and will try and win when the Whites take on Borussia Dortmund for their return leg quarter-final clash in the Champions League at Signal Iduna Park today.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men defeated the Bundesliga side 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu last week, but Jurgen Klopp’s men will be hoping to stage a repeat of their 4-1 victory over the Spanish giants in the first leg of last year’s semi-final and the 22-year-old is wary of a German comeback.

“This is practically a final. The lead from the first leg is big, but not conclusive. They are going to come out and give their all and we are going to try and win and not speculate”, Carvajal told Real Madrid’s official site.

“This stadium puts pressure on you and the first 15 or 20 minutes will be crucial because they'll be lifted by their fans and will try to score and put pressure on the tie.


“In the first leg they had chances and the defence will be key, but we won't go out and sit back, we'll try and take the lead in the first half an hour”, the defender continued.

“Despite everything, we're not going to let fly because they have to score three goals and even more so knowing the damage we can do with our pace and the firepower we have up front.”

Real Madrid, who are the most successful club in the European tournament with nine titles to their name, will be looking to once again make it to the last four stage having won their last Champions League back in 2002.
