Stephan Lichtsteiner says the Bianconeri can be proud of the way they acquitted themselves against reigning European champions Real Madrid in tonight’s 2-1 semi-final first leg win and believes a similar performance is required if they are to complete the job in Madrid next week.
Speaking to the media in the mixed zone, the Swiss defender said: “We definitely gave them a tough time tonight. I don’t think they’re used to playing against an organised team like us.
“We can be happy with the performance and result, we put in a fine display. They possess top players who can make the difference if you don’t stay alert. It’s impressive how good they are, but we were excellent tonight and it’s important we show more of the same in Madrid.”
