Daniel Carvajal: Our fans will be key

Daniel Carjaval says the Real Madrid fans will be key next week as Los Blancos aim to qualify for the Champions League final.

The semi final between the 10-time winners and Manchester City is all-square after the first leg in Manchester on Tuesday night when the sides played out a 0-0 draw.

The Madridistas roared the side on in the quarter final second leg when Real completed a comeback against Wolfsburg from 2-0 to win 3-2 and Carvajal said the fans need to be as vocal next Wednesday.

“Our fans will get behind us for the whole 90 minutes. Thanks to them, and with them driving us on, we’ll try to get to Milan. We’re optimistic,” he was quoted on the club’s website.

Discussing City, who are appearing at the semi final stage for the first time in their history, he added: “They are a similar side to us, with a lot of pace and quality up top. It wasn’t a rip-roaring game and in the return leg we’ll try to perform well defensively, play as a compact unit and not allow them any chances. If we play as we did today, we can make it through to the final. There are 90 minutes to go and we have to win in our stadium and if we don’t do that, we don’t deserve to make the final.”
