“I always have it in my head,” Benzema said. “If you never take penalties, you will never miss one. It is about mental confidence, nothing else. I have a lot of confidence in myself.

“A defeat is never good. We are on a mission in this Champions League, we never drop our hands. Now we have to go to the Bernabeu. We need our fans, as never before, and we are going to do something magic. Which is to win.”
