Andre Schurrle: We will run for our lives for 90 minutes


Wolfsburg winger Andre Schurrle says he and his team mates will run for their lives and leave nothing in the tank when they take on Real Madrid this evening.

The German side take a 2-0 lead to the Spanish capital and are looking to reach the semi finals of the Champions League for the first time.

Predictably, the noises coming out of the Los Blancos camp are that they are confident of overturning the deficit with the help of the home support to create an intimidating atmosphere.

But Schurrle told DPA that the Wolfsburg players are up to the challenge of seeing off the 10-time winners of the competition.

“Tuesday will be at 100 million per cent, we will run for our lives,” he said.
He added that the players have extra motivation to go as far as they can in the competition because their league form has been so poor this campaign and the Champions League offers them a release. Their latest setback was a disappointing 1-1 draw with Mainz at the weekend.

“Of course what we did against Mainz was very poor. Since we beat Real Madrid 2-0, the whole city speaks only of that game but the second leg will not be easy,” he commented.
