Valencia defender Gabriel Paulista: Fans key facing Real Madrid

Valencia defender Gabriel Paulista is excited ahead of Sunday's meeting with Real Madrid.

VCF will meet Real Madrid on the back of their best season start in years.

Paulista said: "It will be a very nice game, especially now that we've got more fans back at Mestalla. It's been a very long week, with a lot of work. We're very well prepared to have a great game," he stated, with the impact of the fans singled out as a big boost.

"Having almost 30,000 people at Mestalla is another thing altogether. We are going to try to do as well as in the last game, and I'm sure that with the fans there we will do much better. We'll always be looking for our objective, which is to take the three points."

"Real Madrid are Real Madrid. They are a very big club, with a lot of history, and every year they show how good they are. If you give them just a little space, then with the players that they have -Benzema, Vinicius in the form he's in now- letting them play makes things very difficult," warns Paulista, who added that "It won't be an easy game for us, but it won't be easy for them either."

"You don't beat Real Madrid every day. It isn't easy. We're going to go for the win, and I hope that the game is like last season's match, when we won the way that we did. The important thing is the three points, and it would be no problem to win 1-0. The most important thing is the three points and remaining at the top."
