Zidane sick of Real Madrid "robbery" jibes after Juve game

Cristiano Ronaldo's converted penalty against Juventus sent Madrid into a semi-final showdown with Bayern Munich despite losing the second leg 3-1, keeping them on track for a third consecutive Champions triumph in the competition.

"Even if Juve played very well, we are in the Champions League semi-final".

Wednesday's thrilling encounter ranks alongside three other close-shaves for Madrid in the competition's quarter-finals.

A year ago they suffered a 2-1 reverse at home to Bayern Munich before reaching the last four after extra-time.

"It's a disgrace. I'm very very disappointed that people keep talking about a robbery".

"Since I've been here there's always been a bad performance in this competition and I always believed we would come through", Carvajal said.

Isco made a decision to post a video on Twitter, showing Castano's reactions to the game between Juventus and Real Madrid, as well as Barcelona's encounter with PSG last season, revealing Castano's true colours.

"But he is who he is, Real Madrid are who they are and there are comings and goings all the time". There's nowhere bigger, so if he does leave Madrid, where's he going to go?

"Juventus climbed towards their impossible dream and for half an hour walked over a confused, dazed and cowardly Madrid", said their report.

"Lucas [Vazquez] and Marco [Asensio] brought more energy, it had to be done, but it was not anything against Gareth or Casemiro". "We have to stop accusations like this", Zidane told a news conference on Saturday ahead of his side's Liga game at basement side Malaga on Sunday.

"Now we have to forget all of this and focus on the semifinal".
