Daley Blind after his hattrick against The County are now ready for Real Madrid.
“We have with z’n all everything in the spelershome followed. At a given moment, it would be FC Porto or Real Madrid. It was Real and then to have cried and on the tables beaten.”
The enthusiasm was, according to Blind not motivated by the lesser results of the last weeks of the current number four of Spain. “No not at all, because Real remains a topploeg. And it is also not that we have a bit of Porto would win”, said the man from Amsterdam, on Sunday, three times scored against The County (8-0). “Moreover, we are only in February and march against Real. Then everything can be different. Real has four of the last five editions of the Champions League won. That is just a beautiful poster. We look really forward to it.”
Blind was already two times with Ajax turned off by Real in the Champions League. In 2011 it was twice 3-0 for the powerhouse from Spain. A year later, Ajax twice, with a 4-1 lead. “We had little chance,” says Blind. “They were deadly in the counter and surprised us time and time again. Against Bayern we have to show that we are with the top European be able to measure if we are to take a dare. That’s what we want against Real again. How good they are, our goal is to get a round further.”
