Marcelo: 'Elimination? We Are Not Barça'

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."
