Casemiro has said teammate Cristiano Ronaldo is “the best player in the world” after the Portugal captain earned another scoring record in his side’s victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
“As for Cristiano, we’re talking about the best player in the world,” Casemiro said after the game, which Madrid won 2-1 to advance to the quarterfinals 5-2 on aggregate. “I want to continue to enjoy seeing him score goals and put in the performances he does, because he’s the best player in the world.”
Casemiro said a third consecutive trophy was possible as Zinedine Zidane’s side cannot be defeated when they are at their best.
“We always want to do our best and tonight we’ve shown that when we perform like that, we’re unbeatable,” Casemiro said. “There are days when things don’t go your way and you can’t always win, but we’re a strong side, both at home and on the road.”
