Marcelo Has A Dig At FC Barcelona As Real Madrid Brush Aside Juventus

By Keegan Kruger - Apr 12, 2018 11:35 AM @KeeganKruger

Real Madrid stalwart Marcelo appears to have had a fresh dig at arch-rivals FC Barcelona after his team brushed aside Juventus to qualify for the UEFA Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday night.

Furious Buffon Slams Ref For Late Penalty Call

After being three goals up following the first leg of their quarter-final tie, Los Blancos surrendered their lead within the first hour of the return fixture, courtesy of two goals from Mario Mandzukic and one from Blaise Matuidi.

With the game looking like heading into extra-time, referee Michael Oliver awarded the Spanish giants a penalty, which Cristiano Ronaldo coolly converted to see Real win the tie 4-3 on aggregate.

After seeing FC Barcelona squander a three-goal lead against Roma on Tuesday night, Marcelo told members of the media after the match that his team were determined not let the same happen to them.

"We should face and we did everything possible to go through," the Brazilian told Marca.

"What happened to Barcelona wasn't going to happen to us because we're Real Madrid."

Speaking about the decision to award the penalty, the Brazilian was convinced a spot-kick was the correct call by the referee.

"The penalty was very clear," he added.

Ronaldo Comments On Controversial Penalty

The result saw Real join Bundesliga giants Bayer Munich, Premier League outfit Liverpool and Serie A's Roma in the semi-finals of the competition.

Reality is for a team to be considered big team is through Continental competitions not domestic cups, eg champions league. Mind you Refereelorna faithfools,what Barca is doing is all about catch ups to RM,let me make it simple so you can understand, Real Madrid have won Record times Champions league 12times,13th loading, 33Times LA Ligas,so that's why I'm saying what Barca is doing is catch ups RM 12 Barca 4,RM 33 Barca 24.
