Ahead of the UEFA Champions League last 16 second leg next week, Real Madrid defender, Raphael Varane has warned Manchester City to be wary of their threat when they visit the Etihad.

The Cityzens lead 2-1 from the first leg but the French international and World Cup winner is confident that the Los Blancos have enough experience to overturn the result.

“We have a lot of experience in these big games, so we can rest easy,” Varane told UEFA’s official website. “We’re just as decisive as before, winning is always our aim and it’s in this club’s DNA.

“We always come into this games with a hunger to win and with determination. We’ll prepare for it and do everything we can, just like we always do in this competition.”

Varane also believes that in-form striker Karim Benzema and can create havoc against Pep Guardiola’s side: “He’s in great form,” Varane said.

“I’m not surprised. Everyone knows his quality. “He has great confidence and he’s one of the best, he’s our leader in attack and he gives us a lot more than just scoring goals. He combines experience, quality and physicality. He’s a complete No.9.”
