Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 16/04/2018


Real Madrid forward Lucas Vazquez has taken a sly dig at Barcelona after Los Blancos defeated Juventus in the quarter finals to reach the semi-final of the tournament eight times in a row.

Vazquez was of the view that it will hurt people to see Real Madrid edge out Juventus to attain the feat.

"It hurts people to see us in the semi-finals eight years in a row," he admitted in his post-match interview.

"It creates envy with people that we have to learn to live with.

"Many people are happy about our misfortune."

The decision to award Los Blancos a late penalty is still being talked about in both Italy and Spain, yet Vazquez fails to see the controversy.

"It was a penalty, that's clear," he intimated.

"People are giving so much attention to something that has already happened.

"The penalty is being discussed more in Spain than in Italy."

Bayern Munich will present a significant challenge for the Spanish giants in the semi-final, although the Spanish midfielder is relishing the task.

"They are one of the biggest teams in Europe," he confirmed.

"It will be a fantastic match.

"James is there too, he's a friend, but I hope he doesn't reach the final."

Real Madrid will travel Germany to face Bayern Munich in the first leg of the semi-final in the Champions League.
