Los Blancos were hit with the heavy defeat on Wednesday evening to leave their hopes of making the competition final wrecked.
“Obviously we're not happy with the result tonight, but if there's one team who can turn this tie around on home turf, it's us, Real Madrid,” Pepe reflected to UEFA’s official website post-match.
“We need to score three goals in the return leg and that's not impossible for us. We've done it many times before, especially at home.
“We didn't start either half well tonight and kept making the same old mistakes.
“If we can sort that out and fight for every minute of the second leg as if it were our last, we can still reach the final.”
