Spaniard Lucas Vázquez, Spanish player of the Real Madrid, acknowledged that he does not know “if it was red or not” the expulsion of the Swiss Remo Freuler in the 18th minute after a controversial foul on the Frenchman Ferland Mendy on the edge of the area, in the 1-0 victory of Real Madrid against the Atalanta.
“They’re details. Because of the experience we have in Champions League, Playoffs are almost always decided by details. The play was very fast: I don’t know if it was red or not. Mendy’s goal is a great goal and we are very happy for him ”, Vázquez said in statements to Movistar.
“We had the result that we had, we knew that it was difficult to sentence the tie. We came to play a very difficult game against a great rival. The result is fair and the victory deserved ”, he analyzed about the meeting.
“The game got complicated. After being sent off they got very back and we controlled the game from start to finish. When we played 11 against 11 we were having a great game. Then they go back and it is difficult for us to find spaces, but in the end we had that goal from Mendy that gives us victory, but knowing that the tie is not resolved ”, he concluded.
