​Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has claimed that he is looking forward to tomorrow's ​Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain and is optimistic of his side's chances of progressing in the tournament.


The Los Blancos, 12 time winners of the Champions League, take on high-flying PSG tomorrow at the Santiago Bernabeu and will be hoping to see off the French giants who will call upon the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.


Speaking before the game, Kroos admitted that it will be a tough tie but insisted that as defending champions, he and his teammates are optimistic going into the clash.



As reported by ​Marca, the German said, "I think people asked the same questions of us last year because we were champions and it is always complicated. In the last Champions League campaign, we played against Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and then Juventus in the final, winning again after doing so in 2016."


Kroos continued, "So I'm really looking forward to playing in these games. It is going to be hard, of course, because PSG are a great team, but so are we. I'm eager to play in these games and I'm looking at them optimistically."


The 28 year old is wary of PSG's world class players but also claimed that Real Madrid too boast some of the best players in the world who can help them knockout the Paris side.



He continued, "We're facing one of the best goalkeepers, four of the best defenders, three of the best midfielders and three of the best strikers. They're a complex team, they're very good but it isn't only about the attack with them."


Talking about PSG's strengths, Kroos stated, "Of course they're good in that area, and fast. They score a lot of goals but we are concentrating on our own game. We also have magnificent defenders, midfielders, strikers and a great goalkeeper ourselves. It is about trusting ourselves in what we do. That will be the most important thing."


Kroos has been an integral part of Zinedine Zidane's side and will be looking to help his side see off their French opposition at the Santiago Bernabeu tomorrow. The return leg is in three weeks time at the Parc des Princes in Paris.
