Ronaldo Reflects on Crucial Week for Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo reflected on what will be a crucial week for Real Madrid, as his team faces Juventus in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday and travels to the Camp Nou to face La Liga leader Barcelona. “I don't think it is a decisive week but it's true that it is an important one for us,” Ronaldo said during a press conference. We didn't start as we would have liked but we are getting better. We are calm, focused. We want to win tomorrow as that will also give us confidence for the game against Barcelona at the weekend.”

Asked what he thinks Real needs to improve on most, the Portuguese said, “We must get better in every aspect. I don't see a single thing we must improve on, it is in all areas. But it is a thing of great pride to work with this Coach [Carlo Ancelotti] -- he is doing an extraordinary job. You can't say more than that. I am willing to give my all for him.”

Ancelotti, meanwhile, spoke about his preparation for the Juventus clash on Wednesday. “We have to analyze all aspects of Juve's last game, every minute and not just the 15 minutes [against Fiorentina last weekend] when they struggled,” the Italian tactician said. “Juventus in general have many players with a lot of quality. Arturo Vidal is very important, he can score and move about the field well. He has shown his quality. Individuals aside, their overall strength lies in their organization.”
