The royal were totally inferior to Chelsea in the 90 minutes of regular season. Real played very passive, lay with 0: 3 behind and stood with the back to the wall. “We did not have the hunger to shoot goals. After 0: 2, the team had a psychological burglary. I can not explain the rest,” Ancelotti is quoted on the website of Blancos and then had somehow a statement for the progress : “The magic of this stadium helps players never give up.”
Ancelotti did not think a second
The coach was despite clear inferiority against the blues, which could have achieved or even more than three goals after 90 minutes, never had to assume that his team leaves. “I never thought we had left, and certainly not in the Bernabeu”, Ancelotti makes it clear. “It’s hard to explain, but this magic helps us. That has helped the whole team to have extra energy to reach the semi-finals.”
At the stand of 0: 3, real would have been out, and it did not look much after a gate of the royal. But then the Blancos cracked together – and were able to thank a brilliant Luka Modric, who found the substitute RDRYGO substitute by external period, which completed to the 1: 3. So also a happy hand from the coach, which brought the scorer shortly before. “When he comes into play, he turns out the difference. He has been doing it often,” said Ancelotti for Rodrygo.
Two Spanish teams in the semifinals
So it went to the extension, where it was once again relying on Karim Benzema. The Frenchman, currently in absolute top shape, scored his fourth goal in this duel and headed a lap. “Nobody can say that we can not win the Champions League. We have shown that we can fight until the end,” says Ancelotti, who now hits Manchester City or City Trival Atletico with his team in the next round.
Rojiblancos could become the third Spanish team in the semi-finals, after Villarreal was completely surprisingly thrown out Bayern. Ancelotti also found the time to praise the “yellow submarine”: “I would like to congratulate Villarreal because they have shown a strong performance, and UNAI (EMERY, D.RED.), because in the end, only a few thought that Spanish football would have two teams in the semi-finals of the Champions League. There are already two, and there could still be a third party. “
