Pepe hails Real MadridPepe will be hoping for a similarly impressive performance in the final
Brazilian-born centre-back Pepe reveals his delight after Los Blancos booked their spot in the final of the Champions League following a 4-0 second-leg win over Bayern Munich.
Real Madrid scored five times without reply over the two legs to book their spot in the final of the competition next month, when they will face the winners of tonight’s clash between Chelsea and Atlético Madrid.
"This was an important victory for me and for all the Madrid fans, after all these years being on the cusp of the final," he told reporters.
"This was an emotional step into the finals we needed it. We knew how important this match was and we did our homework. We worked really hard on dead balls and we were untied."
Real have not won the European Cup since 2002 but are searching for their tenth victory in the competition.
