Müller: “It will be a game on a knife’s edge”

HomeSports NewsMüller: “It will be a game on a knife's edge”

The Bayern footballer explained where he believes the key will be to emerge victorious from the Bernabéu and seal the ticket to the Champions League final.

Thomas Müller knows very well what it means to step onto the pitch of the Santiago Bernabéu . The Munich legend has a total of nine confrontations with Real Madrid , although the statistics are not too much on his side. The world champion has two wins and two draws for five defeats against the white team. This Wednesday he will set foot in the Chamartín coliseum for the sixth time in his career and he admitted in an interview with the club’s media that it is one of the stadiums he likes most in Europe .

“I can’t wait to see it. The stadium has just been renovated. What fascinates me about the Bernabéu is that it is in the center of the city. You are in any neighborhood, you go around the next block and suddenly you find a stadium with 80,000 seats! Football is very important in Madrid. That is also seen in games like this. Personally, it helps me perform at a higher level ,” explained the German attacker.

As for football, Müller is aware that a tough nut to crack awaits him. “ Real Madrid has many faces. They can retreat and are not uncomfortable if they have to defend since they know they have excellent players to counterattack. That concept has worked for them on quite a few occasions. It is no coincidence that they have been consistently in the semi-finals in recent years. Madrid is very dangerous, but there are ways to stand up to them. Whether we can beat them or not will depend on whether we are able to get the ball played or not ,” he stressed.

As for the key to sealing a ticket to the final, the German international was clear: “It will be a level match, on a knife’s edge. Football is about effectiveness . Against Stuttgart (3-1) we had two huge opportunities in the second half when the score was 1-1. If you score, you win, if you don’t, you lose. It all comes down to this. It’s about millimeters, about being effective in those moments when we have opportunities to score. “That’s what it’s about,” he concluded.
