Toni Kroos: “Only we decide who becomes champions”

MADRID. Not great, but okay: Real Madrid gained an advantage in the round of 16 of the Champions League with a 1-0 first leg win against RB Leipzig on Tuesday and will have to defend it in the second leg at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu on March 6th. In the meantime and also before the possible quarter-finals (April 9th/10th and 16th/17th), the Royals can take further steps towards the championship in LaLiga.

After last Saturday’s 4-0 win against FC Girona, the lead over their pursuers from Catalonia is five points instead of two with 14 match days remaining. A success as a clear statement in the title race: Real takes the trophy.

Toni Kroos is confident of winning it as Blanco for the fourth time after 2017, 2020 and 2022. “I think we can only beat ourselves this season. Only we decide who becomes champion. And if we don’t, it’s our own fault.”emphasized the 34-year-old in the podcast “Einfach mal Luppen”, which he runs with his brother Felix.

“Point where you prefer to come with a complete band”

What would benefit the white ballet both for the remaining tasks in the Primera División and in the premier class: the return of injured players. This great bad luck runs like a common thread through the year so far. The professionals in the dressing room recently found out who had been spared so far. Not easy. “Thank God I am one of them. This year it’s really extreme. They’re usually really long injuries.”said Kroos: “We are at a point in the season where exactly these games start, where you naturally prefer to play with a full band. But we don’t have that now.”

While Jude Bellingham and Antonio Rüdiger have been missing recently and should be fit again by the end of February, Thibaut Courtois, Éder Militão and David Alaba have been out for a long time. Curious: All of them tore the anterior cruciate ligament in their left knee. Alaba was hit in mid-December, while Courtois and Militão are nearing their comebacks in team training after their shocking moments in mid-August.



Toni Kroos: “We’ll see Eder Militão this season”

At least when it comes to the Brazilian central defender, Kroos is optimistic about appearances before the summer. “From what I can see, Militão is on a really good path. I think we’ll see Militão again this season. At least he’s back on the pitch a bit, easy on the ball.”said the midfield director, who, in the case of Courtois, does not want to say that he is lagging far behind. He could simply use the return plan for a goalkeeper “To be honest, I don’t really know when to give it a go. He does goalkeeping drills. I don’t know at what point you start taking risks because he throws himself down 100 times in every training session. I don’t know whether the risk is greater with the processes.”. We will see. Only Alaba’s season is certain for now.
