UEFA Champions League

Marcelo Has A Dig At Barca As Real Brush Aside Juventus

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.
