      Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin has reacted to Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva’s spot-kick during both teams’ UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg tie on Wednesday.

      Lunin was Real Madrid’s penalty shootout hero as they beat Manchester City 4-3 after the match ended in a 1-1 draw at Etihad Stadium.

      The Ukraine international made two saves in the shootout as Madrid qualified for the semi-final where they will face Bayern Munich.

      During the shootout, Silva’s penalty was struck tamely straight down the middle of the goal but Lunin said that a decision taken before the shootout with Real Madrid’s coaches enabled him to make what turned out to be an easy save.

      “I needed to take a risk with one of the kicks, we picked one (to stay in the middle) and thank goodness it worked out in our favour,” Lunin told Movistar Plus+.

      “It’s an away Champions League game and we went through a lot of suffering… but I’m very grateful to the team for everything they’ve fought for. I can’t imagine myself running like my teammates did today.”
