Hat-Trick Hero Ronaldo Comments On Madrid Derby Show

08 May 2017, 04:00 | Kristine Mills

Unfortunately their team had given up on them by the 73rd minute of the first leg, conceding Ronaldo's second goal before he completed his hat-trick four minutes from the end, leaving themselves little hope of a comeback next week. We're very happy with our performance, the three goals and, above all, to have kept a clean sheet here at home.

"We're going to try and do something practically impossible next week", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. In La Liga we did well, but [Atletico keeper Jan] Oblak made a lot of saves, and today the ball went in. We haven't won anything yet.

"I don't think that we're euphoric and imagining ourselves in the final".

"We know there is a second leg", he said, quoted on the club's website.

"There's still a second leg to come. Atletico are very strong, they are not in the semi-finals by chance, and we must keep our concentration next Wednesday".

Regardless of the tally, Ronaldo says he feels primed for a crucial run of fixtures in Madrid's pursuit of a LaLiga and Champions League double, though he says his achievements are simply down to hard work.

In Carvajal's absence, manager Zinedine Zidane will nearly certainly lean on 27-year-old versatile Spanish defender Nacho, who's stepped in a right back more than a few times this season. "Sometimes he needs to rest and he knows that because he's intelligent". "He is unique. All the players were brilliant", the Frenchman said.

"Isco played as a number 10 and was fantastic". Then, when we brought Lucas and Marco on, that gave a bit more balance defensively and offered us greater width down the flanks. "I'm pleased with all of my players".

"Atletico Madrid are a great team and they're in the semi-finals for a reason".

"The only thing he did was to stay calm and he proved himself on the pitch".

Atletico, the third force in Spanish soccer behind Madrid and Barcelona, is trying to win its first title and avenge the heartbreaking losses to Madrid in a penalty shootout past year and after extra time in 2014.
