Edison Cavani wary of Real Madrid threat


PSG forward Edison Cavani says he is wary of the dangers posed by Real Madrid as the two teams prepare to meet in the Champions League.

Los Blancos travel to Paris on Wednesday night with both teams unbeaten in the respective leagues this season and both having won their opening two matches in the group stage.

The two clashes against the Ligue 1 champions will decide who tops the group and avoids a potentially trickier last 16 draw.

And speaking to Marca, Cavani, a one time target for Real, said Los Blancos have players who can hurt them in a matter of seconds.

“It’s always special, it’s a great competition to be playing in, because you get to pit yourself against the very best, against clubs with great history,” Cavani stated.

And he continued: “It’s always a great occasion when you face Real and we’re preparing for the match in the best way possible. One of the things that makes the best teams in the world the best is the fact that, across midfield and up top, they are capable of hurting you.

“It’s always an honour to play in games like this one, they have some outstanding players who are capable of making you pay in seconds.I think that you have to be switched on for the full 90 minutes against this sort of team, you’ve always got to be mindful of the opposition and their players.”
