Cristiano Ronaldo believes Real Madrid will end the season on a high and lift the Copa del Rey trophy on Friday night.
The Portuguese forward said Los Blancos are on a decent run of form at the moment, despite the elimination by Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
Madrid go into the game as favourites to win the trophy against their city rivals Atletico as the match will be played at the Bernabeu, where Los Blancos remain unbeaten this season. In addition, Atletico haven’t beaten Los Merengues since 1999.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Ronaldo said the squad was excited about the prospect of picking up some silverware.
He stated: “Let’s hope that Real Madrid can win. But if we go out on the pitch strong and we play as we know how, we’re going to win. We’re very excited about this trophy and we want to win.”
He also urged the Real fans to raise the roof and replicate the atmosphere produced in the semi-final second leg match against Dortmund in the Champions League.
Ronaldo added: “”As long as I’ve been here I have never seen a reception like that. It was a really special, unique moment that none of us players will ever forget.
“I hope that the same happens on Friday because it motivates us to give our all when we hit the playing field. That’s what we want.”
