Arjen Robben has set his sights on helping Real Madrid winning the UEFA Champions League trophy for the tenth time after joining the club from Chelsea in the summer.
Los Merengues take on Lazio in their second game in Group C, but the Dutch international already has sights set on an appearance in the final.
"It is a dream," he explained. "It will be more special to win it with this team because they've already won nine European Cups. We could bring the tenth back home with us this year.
"That's why I came here. I wanted to be part of this great club. It will be hard to win because there are many quality teams in Europe. We all want to do well.
"I dream about winning the League, the Champions League and every other competition at Real Madrid."
Looking ahead to the encounter with Lazio, Robben stated that he expected a tougher game although he admitted that he does not know much about Madrid's opponents.
"It will be another great match and it will be important to win. Six points will leave us in a good position to go through to the next round.
"I didn't pay much attention to the Italian League last year in England. I know they are a strong team. They don't have great stars or great players for that matter, but they form a very strong block collectively.
"I'm sure the game will be very difficult for us."
