The full-back has revealed that Los Blancos are bracing themselves for a BVB onslaught, with Jurgen Klopp’s men needing to overturn a three-goal first-leg deficit
Real Madrid defender Daniel Carvajal expects Borussia Dortmund to go all-out attack right from the start of Tuesday’s Champions League clash at the Signal Iduna Park.
The Bundesliga outfit were beaten 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg of their quarter-final tie last week and Carvajal has little doubt that they will give it their all to turn things around in the return.
“We know exactly how Dortmund play. They play good football and try to put brutal pressure on the opposition,” the full-back said at a press conference.
“They will try everything to turn the tide. We will try to resist that and play to win. We expect them to go on all-out attack for the first 15, 20 minutes, propelled by their fans – they want to put pressure on us and score a quick goal.
“Then they will hope to keep things open. We have to try to avoid conceding, but why should we not try to score ourselves.”
Madrid were eliminated by Dortmund in the semi-finals of the competition last season, when they lost the first leg at the Signal Iduna Prak 4-1 before recording a 2-0 win at the Bernabeu.
