"For everyone it will be an important and beautiful game to watch, and we always want the best on the field," Koeman told the press conference prior the match. "I do not know if [Ronaldo] is fit to play, it is not my problem or my decision.
"But I hope he is going to play, for his game and his fame. I respect him a lot."
"They are a great European team, which has people with a lot of experience," Koeman added. "They are strong in defence, despite the losses, they know how to dominate the match and have top quality players.
"[Paulo] Dybala is a quality player and can complicate your life, and [Alvaro] Morata too. There are also good players in the midfield."
