Monchengladbach vs Real Madrid | Champions League Gladbach host Real Madrid in Champions League
Matthias Ginter knows the threat Borussia Monchengladbach will face in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Bundesliga side will be expecting a reaction from Real Madrid, who lost their opening group game at home to Shakhtar Donetsk last week.
Los Blancos are in Germany to take on Marco Rose’s side and have the likes of Karim Benzema at their disposal.
“I think it’s clear that Karim Benzema is a very good player,” Ginter told the press on Monday. “He’s a top striker who’s been at this level for many years.
“Sometimes he looks a bit odd, but when he gets inside the box, he’s a poacher. It’s difficult to play against him, but I think we’ll be able to defend as a team. I faced him a few years ago, so I know his style. He’s a top attacker.”
