Madrid qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek with a win over Napoli

Madrid qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek with a win over Napoli

Lionel Messi suffered a hard afternoon, which was summed up when he blasted a 91st minute free kick over the bar from his favourite position on the edge of the box, leading the crowd at the Riazor to celebrate like their side had scored a goal. Their goal took its toll on us. We have to congratulate Deportivo, they're deserved winners. "Only someone who has experienced what we did this week knows what it means", he said in his press conference.

However, the Catalan giants leveled matters a minute after the break through Luis Suarez powerful close range effort.

And just three minutes later, fresh from scoring two vital away goals at Napoli to ease Madrid into the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday, Ramos powered home another Toni Kroos header for the victor.

The loss comes just days after their heroic comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Luis Suarez equalised seconds after the restart but an Alex Bergantinos header sealed Deportivo's win.

"Obviously it was hard".

Theresa May turns the tables on Nicola Sturgeon over a second referendum
The SNP accused May of hypocrisy, for criticising Scottish demands for independence while seeking a "hard Brexit". May also made a promise about decisions made by the Scottish parliament.

"We lacked that lucidity and it was a shame because I think this match was very important to continue our form and for our rivals to see how good we are, but we were blunt".

Luis Enrique said he was disappointed his side could not build on the momentum gained from winning five games in a row and scoring 17 goals in their previous three.

However, Marc-Andre ter Stegen could only parry Javier Mascherano's outstretched leg from a corner straight to Joselu, who blasted the ball home at the near post.

Enrique turned to Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic for a victor in the final half hour as Arda Turan and Andre Gomes were sacrificed. It is always better to go in euphoric than pessimistic.

Lux made a great save to deny Suarez a second equaliser, but Deportivo held out to give their hopes of survival a huge boost as they move eight points clear of the bottom three and up to 15th.
