Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, said he and his team mates are ready for their first Champions League match since winning the trophy for the third consecutive season.

Real Madrid will host Roma at the Santiago Bernabeu and Benzema is relishing the clash against the Italians.

"We have started well in LaLiga Santander," he said.

"We play with a high pace, a lot of possession and quality and the victories have been good for us.

"To have the first game at home is important and we need to keep possession and get into our rhythm more than the opposition."

"In this club the aim is always to win," he said.

"We have to win everything and play well and have to sacrifice to win.

"Every time I play I want to score, assist and help the team to win. Each year I have more responsibility and this year I am the third captain so I have to show a lot."

Real Madrid are in Group G alongside Roma, CSKA Moscow and Victoria Plzen.
