Marcelo insisted Real Madrid were never going to capitulate like fierce rivals Barcelona after the Champions League title holders dramatically survived against Juventus.
Madrid kept their quest for a European three-peat alive with a 4-3 aggregate victory over Juventus in the quarter-finals, despite Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Italian champions.
Marcelo - the captain in the absence of suspended skipper Sergio Ramos - could not help himself from having a dig at Barca, who surrendered a 4-1 first-leg advantage in a stunning 3-0 collapse against Roma on Tuesday.
"We should face and we did everything possible to go through," the Brazil international full-back said. "What happened to Barcelona wasn't going to happen to us because we're Real Madrid."
