“The past doesn’t matter now. We had an important season in Europe, but that doesn’t count for anything now, as we begin afresh and need a great performance,” the full-back told Roma TV.
“Our objective is to get through the round. It’ll be tough today, but always a wonderful experience to play at the Bernabeu.
“We need a good result to make up for a difficult start to this season. We need more quality in our football and the Coach will certainly find solutions to make Roma stronger.
“We can’t just sit back and wait for Real Madrid to score against us, as that really isn’t our style. We play our game and then will see what the result says.”
