The coach explains why he took off Bale and Casemiro vs Juventus: ‘Asensio and Lucas gave us more energy’.
“I’m happy, we deserved to go through after 180 minutes.
“We had plenty of chances, it was difficult that we didn’t score, but that’s football. We had a great game at their place and tonight everything was the other way around, that’s true.
“We had chances, but the ball didn’t want to go in. In the end, we suffered. We had to fix up during half-time.
“Substitutions? Lucas and Asensio gave us a little more energy. It wasn’t the fault of Bale or Casemiro. Lucas and Asensio and then Kovacic gave us a little more calmness. The penalty? I didn’t see it, but I was told it was a clear penalty.
“Ronaldo? He never fails…”
