Barcelona tied 1-1 with Real Madrid in the second of the two-leg semi-final on May 3 and moved into the finals of the UEFA Champions League, courtesy their win 2-0 win in the first encounter.

Ronaldo said, "Barcelona is very well protected...we knew something would happen...(Higuain's) goal was legal. Pique pushed me and I fell on top of Mascherano, who never went to the ground in England, but here he's learned that trade like the rest of them."

His comments are second from the Real Madrid club as earlier their coach Jose Mourinho, who is serving a ban sentence.
