Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez: There's a definite anti-Madrid sentiment

Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez is convinced a bias exists across Europe against his club.

Vazquez, who won the penalty against Juventus last week, believes there's a campaign against Real Madrid.

"I think there's an anti-Madrid sentiment, yes," he said. "I think it hurts people to see us in the [Champions League] semi-finals eight years in a row.

“It creates envy with people that we have to learn to live with. Many people are happy about our misfortune."

On the penalty, he added: "It's a clear penalty. For them (Juve) it wasn't, but I told them 'when you see it on the television, you will see.'

"I guess in the end you have to understand that after a great game it was a tough end, but I think seeing the replays there's no doubt (it was a penalty)."
