Real Madrid are set to lift the Champions League trophy for the third time in five years with a 2-0 win over Inter Milan.
Key points:”I don’t think we can take anything for granted,” said MourinhoAfter the match, Real Madrid midfielder Graziano Pelle, who scored the winner in the first leg, spoke of the importance of winning back the Champions Leagues crown from Juventus.
“I think we need to do everything we can to achieve that,” he said.
“In the past, we have done it but now it’s a new era.”
The team that was ahead of us and had the ball a lot, played with more passion.
“Today we had more possession and more balls in the air.”
It was important for us to keep pressing the game and score the goal.
“The win was the first in four games and the third in five matches for Inter.”
Inter showed us the same things we saw in the last game.
They are a very good team, a great club and I’m happy that they won,” said the Madrid manager.”
They are a great team that we want to win the league and they are a team that can play in every match.
“This is a team with two great strikers, and two great defenders.
They have two great forwards and two good defenders.”
We have a great goalkeeper, and we are a bit disappointed we didn’t win the game.
“Inter had two shots on target in the second half and had their best chance when David Villa missed a penalty and the ball bounced over goalkeeper David Ospina’s shoulder.”
One thing I think is very important is the fact that we scored a goal when we wanted to, when we were in the game,” said Pelle.”
That shows the importance we give to our team.
“Inter’s captain, Sergio Ramos, added: “It’s difficult to say that the players have done everything they could, but we knew they would be ready to play, and that’s what they did.
“Of course, we need two goals in the next two games to seal it.”
Now we just have to see what happens in the coming weeks.
“Inter are third in the table with 11 points from 11 games, but are four points adrift of third-placed Juventus with three games to play.”
If they are in a position to win this league, then they can do it. “
They have a lot of quality in the team and have been very competitive in recent years.”
If they are in a position to win this league, then they can do it.
“We need to be careful and try to make our opponent suffer.”
Juventus will travel to face Barcelona in the Champions Cup next Tuesday and Mourinho will return to the stadium for his final game in charge at the Bernabeu before the end of the season.
“Everyone is aware that the competition is very good,” he added.
“There’s a lot to be said for the fact it’s very tough and that it will take a lot more than just a few days for the teams to be in a good position to compete.”
But in the end, it will be very hard, because you can’t underestimate Inter.
