Sergio Ramos’ aerial ability saved Real Madrid after a troublesome first half in Naples, but the Madrid captain refused to get carried away by his own heroics as he wishes Barcelona lose in the Champions League so he can “sleep more easily”.
While La Liga giants and fierce adversaries Barca are confronting a last-16 exit, trailing Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 ahead of their second leg at Camp Nou on Wednesday.
Ramos would love to see Luis Enrique’s men leave, saying: “I’ll be more joyful if Barcelona loses.
“A week ago, the critics were killing me so I’m not going to claim to be a hero now after scoring these goals,” Ramos said to reporters after the final whistle. “But what better way for me to celebrate 100 matches [in Europe] than by scoring?”
“We suffered a lot in the first half,” he stated. “If we knew the formula to always play well, things would be very easy. “Things don’t always go to plan but when the attitude is good, everything else follows.”I’ll be happier if Barcelona loses, I’ll sleep more easily.”.
