Real Madrid managed to go through to the Champions League semi-finals, but they almost let a three-goal lead slip away just as Barcelona had done the night before.

Yet captain-for-the-night Marcelo explained that his team weren’t going to let the same kind of collapse happen to them.

“We should face and we did everything possible to go through,” he said after the match.

“What happened to Barcelona wasn’t going to happen to us because we’re Real Madrid.”

Speaking about the decision to award a penalty for a foul on Lucas Vazquez, the Brazilian was convinced that a spot kick was the correct call.

“The penalty was very clear,” he said.
