Pep reaction 💬

“I’m so happy to be three years in a row in the Champions League semi-finals.

“We have reached three semi-finals and what we have done is incredible.

“I think all the clubs in the world have the feeling if you want to win this competition you have to beat Real Madrid.

“Before it used to be Barcelona but now it’s Madrid.”


KDB on tonight's win 💬

“I think going into the semis is what we wanted to do.

“I’ve played here before and in the beginning you know they’re going to come aggressive and theyre going to try and put you under pressure.

“But, I think we dealt well with the pressure. We defended when there was a tough moment and at certain times we created what we needed to create.

“We had a penalty, we had a couple of chances, obviously didn’t score, and then the goal from Erling seals it almost. Even then, when we were tied together, we did what we needed to do in the difficult moments and I think it was a very smart game from us.”


Bernardo on Real Madrid semi-final 💬

“We know how hard it is to play Real Madrid in this competition.

"We’re going to go for it, definitely.

“We always go for it, but we feel the team is very confident at the minute.”


More Bernardo reaction 💬

“The next games [are] another final against Sheffield [United] and Arsenal.

“They are going to be tough, but it’s going to be fun. When you’re a little kid you work to get to these moments and you enjoy it as a football player.

“We’ll work very hard to bring some titles back home.
