Cristiano Ronaldo: Is confident for Real Madrid's Champions League chances

A much-changed Madrid side enjoyed a 5-1 rout of Levante last night, just days after they beat Galatasaray 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Although early-season stutters have left them too far adrift of Barcelona in La Liga, the club's long-held ambition of regaining Europe's top prize remains in sight.

"This is possibly the best form that the team has been in this season," Ronaldo said. "We have a full squad with everyone available and that is very positive news, the coach can pick the best team.

"We have to respect his decisions. In football many things are possible, we have to have the desire to win because it gives us a morale boost for the Champions League".

Ronaldo was on the bench yesterday, but came on in the second half and scored their third goal.

"My aim is always to help Real Madrid with assists or goals," he added. "To be going at a goal per match makes me very happy, this is my profession and I try to always do my best. I feel good and I want to continue like this until the end of the championship."

Speculation has continued to surround the Portugal international, who has been linked with a summer move, but he batted such questions aside.

" I still have a lot to give to Real Madrid and the club can count on me because I'm always available," he said. "The important thing is winning, playing and Real Madrid, and my future does not matter".

Assistant coach Aitor Karanka was happy with the display.

"We have a lot of quality players and when our opponent lets us have the ball in the Bernabeu, matches go well for us," he said.

"We are coming to the important part of the season, the team is doing really well and it shows in matches like Wednesday in the Champions League and today in the league".
