What they said after Wednesday's Champions League games

Key quotes after the Champions League quarter-finals second legs on Wednesday:

Manchester City (ENG) 1 (De Bruyne 76) Real Madrid (ESP) 1 (Rodrygo 12) - after extra-time

-- 4-4 on aggregate; Real Madrid win 4-3 on penalties

"It's relief. You put so much into the game. I've played against City before and they snatch it away from you. I was pretty much dead on my feet at the end."

-- Real Madrid's English star Jude Bellingham

"You have to see it as a responsibility not a pressure if you want to play for a team like Real Madrid."

-- Bellingham on his first season with Real

"We created the chances to do it but football is about scoring goals. Thank you to my players. It is a result business, they are in the semi-final and we are not."

-- Man City coach Pep Guardiola on seeing his team's defence of the title ended by 14-time champions Real.

"These are magic nights, the ones you dream of as a kid, I've got goosebumps."

-- Real Madrid defender Nacho to Movistar

"It seemed like we'd started the shoot-out badly but we turned it around, we fought, we fought until the end, this team has so much pride."

-- Nacho on fighting back in the penalty shoot-out

Bayern Munich (GER) 1 (Kimmich 63) Arsenal (ENG) 0

-- Bayern Munich win 3-2 on aggregate

"An unbelievable win. It's been a tough season for us. We've had to fight and grind it out at times. We knew we could make the difference with our fans at home. It was a tough game, a tight game. It was a great goal from Josh (Kimmich). To reach the semi-finals is a great achievement for us and we can enjoy it."

-- Bayern striker Harry Kane to TNT Sports after his team's win.

"The expectation here is to try and win the Champions League. We won the (Bundesliga) league for 11 years in a row so maybe there was a bit of tempo missing. That can't happen. Now we have to enjoy the Champions League and try to get ready for Saturday."

-- Kane on the team's ambition after losing the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen.

"We wanted it so badly but you can see with many other clubs that sometimes it takes six or seven years to get to that stage. We were very close, that is the reality."

-- Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta.
