Barcelona

3-0 in their first game to record the most wins (20) and the most goals scored (73) in the last three Champions League seasons.

One of the players who has done a great job this season has been

Gnabry

as has scored three goals and provided two assists for his teammates so far.

"

I didn't do anything with [Gnabry] consciously and didn't have that many conversations,"

the boss told reporters on Tuesday when asked about Gnabry's form.

"I've known him for a long time, if not as long as Niki [Niklas Sule]. We already had a good connection in Hoffenheim and it works properly.

"For me, he is very important as a type, he brings in a good mood. In terms of play, he is of course also important, he has a good degree, a good feeling and good ideas.

"The player with quality in connection with the character, I look forward to seeing him every day.

"I see it that he has to be free and not think too much about what he is doing. He does a lot about instinct and has the street footballer gene."

Nagelsmann spoke about his game against the reigning champions of Ukraine, who have never won a game at Allianz Arena in Europe.

"

They are always favourites in the league and play that way,

" he continued. "

They are often very low in games in the Champions League. Benfica failed to score, it will be our main task to play around the block

.

"We want to get three points and stay ahead in the table. Otherwise, the plan is more tactical. We want to put a lot of pressure on possession. We also have to avoid counter-attacks.

"It's about making it clear that we are one of the favourites. In the end, the team that lifts the trophy has to be the one that has won the most games. We want to be that team."
