Additionally, club captain Karim Benzema made an appearance at the pre-game news conference to discuss the match.
He was, however, mostly questioned about the France national team, his recent retirement, and his friendship with Cristiano Ronaldo, which is said to have gone down after the Portuguese failed to congratulate him on winning the Ballon d’Or last year.
“We don’t need to take photos to say we’re friends, the photos are for Instagram or Twitter, that’s another world”, Benzema replied to the reporters.
“We didn’t have time to greet each other because I was training and immediately he also went to train. I hope to see him tomorrow [Sunday; ed.] at the stadium and be able to talk to him for a while”, he added.
Recall that a short while ago, Real Madrid forward Rodrygo Goes posted a beautiful picture of himself with his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo, on social media.
