In a post-match interview with Movistar, Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois spoke about defeating Manchester City.
How do you explain what happened?
“One word: Real Madrid.
“This team and this club are capable of anything. We kept believing until the end, and ultimately we made it possible.
“We knew we were in better shape going into extra time; it was a case of digging in and defending well, which is what we did.
“We weren’t great in front of goal – we were missing the final pass, and sometimes it feels like it won’t go for you – but with the goal and the fans behind us, we knew anything could happen.”
Advantage over Liverpool
“We are happy, we have won the league, we have time to prepare for the final, an advantage we have over Liverpool who are still playing for the league and have to give everything until the end. It’s the only advantage we can have. We can get injured players back and hope that we win the final.”
