Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos believes his side should progress in the Champions League if they ‘trust in themselves’.
The Germany international insists Paris Saint-Germain are a ‘fantastic team’ but he draws upon the experience of recent back-to-back Champions League titles as reason for optimism.
“The important thing for us is to trust in ourselves and our own ability,” Kroos is cited as saying by Marca.
“PSG’s team is fantastic, every player is and their team is hugely complex – their attack is incredible yet they are about much more than that.
“We must concentrate on our game and play in our own style, to be confident in ourselves and we are in optimistic mood.
“It was fantastic last year to beat Napoli, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Juventus, and I’m sure this year again it will be similarly difficult for any side to win.
“We must look forward to these games, they are the best part of the season.”
