Reaction

Madrid’s dramatic last-eight triumph

Hasan Salihamidžić, Bayern sporting director: “A really top opponent. We went out to them last year. This year, we want to do better. If you want to reach the final, you have to be able to beat every team. I’m optimistic.”

Emilio Butragueño, Real Madrid director of institutional relations: “We need to get a good result in Munich to take back to the Bernabéu. At this stage of the competition, it’s impossible that you don’t suffer. If we have to do so in order to get to the final, so be it. It’s been a tough Champions League thus far, drawing Paris, Juve and now Bayern.”
