Mario Gotze warns Real Madrid: "We are in very good form at the moment"

Mario Gotze spoke ahead of Real Madrid's visit to play Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and issued a warning of sorts to Zidane's side.

Playing Real Madrid once again: "We have played Real Madrid in the past, and they have always been good games. We are happy to met them again, we play at home and it will be a good encounter."

Key to the game: "That's a good question...if we knew that though, it would be an easy game. We are looking forward to a difficult game, we have a lot of respect for them because they won the last two Champions Leagues. But this is a new season, we are in a very good moment and we will perform with all the effort we can. We are confident in ourselves and we are playing at home."

Pressing style from Dortmund under Bosz: "The team, and all of us, have done very well. I haven't seen it before and it's a step forward. You can see it in our results and in the goals we have scored. It's a good idea and the type of football that I can relate to and play. I'm delighted with it. We move the ball to the central man and we give ourselves an advantage."

Psyhcological advantage in the stadium: "We know that here we are very good but that's not going to help tomorrow. It's a new season and we will arrive to the game focused on the task at hand and our opponent."
