Casillas: "Our objective is improving on our last year's performance in the Champions League"

Iker Casillas spoke to the press ahead of Real Madrid's clash with Olympique Lyonnais tomorrow night at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium (20:45 CET).
"We made a great improvement last year by reaching the quarter-finals and then the semi-finals in the Champions League. Our record against Olympique Lyonnais is not in our favor but we managed to defeat them last year and also break the quarter-finals jinx. They change players every year but still qualify. They are a tough opponent and this is going to be a great match. Getting the six points out of both the home and away games will be very important for us". 

"The goalkeepers at Real Madrid feel safe thanks to our defenders. Our defense is extraordinary; we have both young and experienced players. Ramos has the talent and the physique; he does well as a right-back and also in the center of the defense like he showed with Spain in the World Cup in South Africa".

"Higuain is in a good shape. I've known him for a long time now and his objective is always to score goals. We are happy with the excellent run he is having at the moment, but also Benzema is scoring goals and assisting his teammates. It's good for the team that both of them are doing well".

On how the team is received by fans around the world: "I have no complaints, I've always been treated well both with the Los galacticos eight years ago and now it's the same. The fans are always close to the team". 

On being the best goalkeeper in the world: "Things come with hard work and ehtusiasim, but the rest of the team have also to help and support you. For the last three consecutive years, I've been chosen as the best goalkeeper in the world and we will work to win that title for the fourth consecutive year".
