A Bayern Munich star and former teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo discussed how they plan to stop five-time Ballon d'Or winner in their upcoming UEFA Champions League semi-final.
James Rodriguez, who's currently on loan from Real, has been cleared to play against his parent-club as the two European giants battle it out for a spot in the final of Europe's elite club competition.
However, with Ronaldo in sublime form, scoring in every single game during the 2017/18 campaign, the Colombia international admitted it's a frightening proposition for the Bundesliga champions.
"He's a goal machine, and he's demonstrated that time and again. His figures speak for themselves," he told reporters, as quoted by AS. "Hopefully we can have two good nights at the office and defend well as a unit to stop him from being at his best against us
"Mind you, we not only have to keep an eye out for him but also the rest of the team. They're not just about Cristiano: they have top players in every department. It won't be easy at all."
