Ahead of the Champions League semi-final clash between Real Madrid and Chelsea tonight, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has revealed how the Blues intend to keep the French striker quiet.
Benzema is Real Madrid’s leading goalscorer this season with 26 goals but Rudiger isn’t overly concerned about facing the 33 year old striker.
Asked how he intends to stop Benzema, Rudiger told Spanish media outlet Marca: “He’s one of the best strikers in the world, a player with more than 10 years at Madrid who has won everything. A top player.
“But it’s not just me facing him – we are a team.”
Under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea’s defence have become the best in Europe and Rudiger is confident the Blues can stop Real Madrid tonight.
