Madrid booked their place in the last eight thanks to two goals in second-half from Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez to seal a 2-0 win at the Santiago Bernabeu.
'Went on attack'
"We tried to attack without thinking about the result in the first-leg," said Zidane, despite the fact his side held a 2-0 lead from the first meeting. "We conceded chances that scared us a little, but when you cede space you assume risks.

"However, the most important thing for us was to use the ball in the best way possible. I am happy with the way we attacked and I think defensively we improved a lot in the second-half.
"Now we have to think about our next league game and wait and see who we face next (in the Champions League). Everyone dreams of winning the Champions League and we are in the hunt."
Meanwhile Wolfsburg also advanced with a aggregate 4-2 win over Gent.
