Real Madrid shouldn’t underestimate Wolfsburg – Illgner


Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Bodo Illgner has claimed Los Blancos should not underestimate Wolfsburg, their rival in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

“Real Madrid shouldn’t underestimate Wolfsburg. The only thing left for both teams is to offer their fans something to compensate a disappointing season, which is only possible in the Champions League,” the German told Kicker magazine.

Illgner reminded that Schalke were close to knocking Los Merengues out last year: “Last season we saw what happens with rivals that are inferior in theory. Schalke put Real Madrid in big trouble in the second leg.”

The Los Blancos legend explained Wolfsburg are going through a specific preparation to beat Real in the Champions League: “Wolfsburg will go into both games against Real Madrid completely focussed.”
