Bayern Munich feel they were sentenced to Champions League exit by referee Viktor Kassai and his assistants, but Real Madrid midfielder Isco has -obviously- a different point of view, being on the side of those who benefited from most of the incorrect refereeing decisions last night.
Madrid beat Bayern 4-2 in extra time after falling 2-1 in regular time, playing with an extra man after the 84th minute, when Arturo Vidal was shown a second yellow card despite clearly finding the ball and nothing but the ball in an innocent challenge.
Later on, Cristiano Ronaldo, who reached triple digits in his Champions League goal tally, scored twice from positions that seemed to be offside.
I don’t know about the refereeing decisions. In the first leg, Bayern were wrongly awarded a penalty. That is all part of the game
Isco told reporters after the game, admitting that Real suffered to advance, despite the huge advantage they gained with their 2-1 win in Munich last week.
We were really made to suffer, but ultimately we are in the semi-finals. In the first half we could have put the tie to bed, we had some clear-cut chances and perhaps we paid the price for not taking them after the break. However, we did not let our heads drop and we pulled it off
the Spain international said.
