Sergio Ramos insists that Real Madrid have to maintain their form until the end of the season to win the Champions League.

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has urged his teammates not to get carried away with their performance against Galatasaray at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Jose Mourinho's side won the first leg of their quarter-final tie 3-0 at home, but the Spanish centre-back insists that they have to maintain their focus.

"Despite a poor start to the season, what followed was a more united group - more eager, more enthusiastic, more ambitious to keep improving, doing things right," Ramos told UEFA.com.

"But we can't set off the fireworks just yet because we haven't achieved anything. So we are putting in the same amount of work and concentration.

"We want to finish the season by experiencing victories and above all by winning trophies."

The second leg of the tie will be played in Istanbul on Tuesday.
