Toni Kroos affectionately called Real Madrid a "f*cking joke" in reaction to their Champions League semi-final second leg triumph on Wednesday against Manchester City, which required two stoppage time goals and an extra time finish.

The Blancos came from behind to earn a 6-5 aggregate win, with Kroos watching from the touchline as they completed their turnaround after he had been substituted.

Players were in high spirits as their improbable knockout run featuring three comebacks was extended to the final in Paris against Liverpool.
