“The knockout round was very close and we have certain errors to blame", explained Carvajal.
Sergio Ramos scored the first Real Madrid goal against Atlético and talked about the knockout round after the game: "Both we and the coach are proud of having given everything. I think we deserved more in the first half, as we created a lot of chances. However, we can't take anything away from Atlético, they really know how to compete well as a team".

"We are sad to have been eliminated and because we wanted to respond in the best way possible for the fans who were with us from the moment we arrived at Concha Espina. In the end, it wasn't to be. It is never pleasing to be eliminated, but there is nothing we can do. Now we want to recover and focus on the remaining competitions".

Ramos: "We are going to do everything possible to win the Champions League and La Liga".

“We had a great campaign last season and we are making an effort to keep competing and reach the objectives. The season is long and when this club loses two matches, people start talking about a crisis. We now need to keep calm and move on. We have to focus on what we can achieve”.

Carvajal: “We have to thank the fans”
“In both the first leg and tonight, we have paid a high price for our errors, despite the fact that we can be proud of having played 60 fantastic minutes. We didn't go out there with a lack of focus. The first goal was unlucky. The knockout round was very close and we have certain errors to blame".

"We have to thank the fans. We are Real Madrid and we are really annoyed to have lost a competition, but we have to look forward and approach La Liga and the Champions League with everything we have. I don't think they have taken our measure, we are the European champions".
