Atlético Madrid's Marcos Llorente spoke after his side recorded a famous win at Anfield over Liverpool (2-3, 2-4 agg) to go through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, with the midfielder scoring two goals in extra-time to see his side through.

An agonising win over Liverpool

When games go into the final minutes like that, so tight, when you're really suffering, the truth is the victoria tastes better.

Atlético Madrid's ability to suffer

We don't know the limit to how much we can cope with, how much we can suffer, like we did today. The team has put in an incredible performance, we've suffered to the death and got the victory.

How do you feel after your goals?

Basically, scoring a goal that sees your side go through is a feeling you can't describe.

What did your teammates and Simeone say to you?

They all congratulated me. We're delighted to go through. There is a lot of work to do in LaLiga and a lot to be decided.
