After starting the match on the right side of midfield, an injury to Dani Carvajal forced Vazquez into a utility right back role, although he didn’t miss a step when dealing with Franck Ribery.
“It was complicated, they didn’t make things easy for us,” he admitted in his post-match interview.
“We were more successful than them in the end.
“It was a very good performance.”
Marco Asensio’s winning goal was an example of Los Blancos’ ability to be effective on the counter attack, one which Vazquez played a key part in.
“It was a very good counter attack after Rafinha lost the ball,” he continued.
“In the end Marco’s finish was perfect.
“He’s been demonstrating for a long time that he’s a fantastic player.”
When pushed on his spell at right back, the former Espanyol loanee was humble after he managed to prevent Ribery from creating a second goal for the Bavarian giants.
“It’s a lot easier with the help of my teammates,” he confirmed.
“Ribery is a great player, he’s 35 years old but plays like he’s 25.
“You try to play with intensity and help the team.”
