Benzema hopes for La Decima

Karim Benzema wants to help Real Madrid claim their 10th European Cup but is now focused on La Liga.

Madrid beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0 on Wednesday in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg, putting Los Blancos in a strong position to reach the semi-final.

The club are searching for a record 10th European crown, having gone since 2002 for the ninth, won over Bayer Leverkusen at Hampden Park.

Benzema told reporters after the match that he believes the squad is in good shape for a successful season.

“The fans have been very good and they are with us,” the striker added.

“This result is very important for the return leg.

“The squad is good. We are always together and we will continue to be so.

“I know in Madrid you have to win it all. Hopefully we can win La Decima, but now we must think about the League.”

Madrid play Real Sociedad at Anoeta on Saturday.
