‘Madrid never risked doing a Barca’

Marcelo insists ‘what happened to Barcelona wasn’t going to happen to us because we’re Real Madrid’.

Madrid needed a 98th-penalty to reach the Champions League semi-finals after Juventus had wiped out their 3-0 lead from the first leg, whereas Barca had no reply to Roma’s comeback on Tuesday.

“We put our necks on the line and gave everything to go through,” the left-back said after the game, reports Marca.

“The penalty? It was very clear. What happened to Barcelona wasn’t going to happen to us because we’re Real Madrid.”
