Galatarasay midfielder Melo: Real Madrid lucky Nani was sent off

Galatasaray midfielder Felipe Melo says Real Madrid are fortunate to be on the brink of reaching the Champions League semifinals.

Melo has no complaints about Gala's 3-0 first-leg defeat, but says Real were lucky to be their opponents.

"I found a very strong team, not much to talk about. They are 3-0 ahead already . Madrid is the favorite, is a very good club and we knew they were very strong," said Melo.

"But I think if Nani had not been expelled for Manchester United this would not have happened..."
