Real Madrid managed to get a ticket to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League in a match against France’s Paris Saint-Germain at home (3:1).
After the final whistle, the head coach of the Whites, Carlo Ancelotti, spoke about his impressions of the actions that were on the pitch that night. “We suffered a lot but managed to survive. We had problems with the return of the ball, but the qualitative pressure on the defence of rivals from Benzema allowed us to equalize, after which the world saw the real magic of the Santiago Bernabeu. After the score was 1:1, only one team remained on the field.
Modric and Benzema are only getting better with each passing day of their careers. I enjoy the opportunity to work with them. Karim was injured, but now he is back in the lineup. Luka always plays at the highest level, no matter what condition he is in. I made changes during the game only at the moment when the dynamics of the match were changing. Our moves were made not just like that, but in order to get as much endurance as possible for all players.
Can we say after this game that we will win the Champions League? Look, if we play at the limit of our own capabilities, we will be able to compete with any team. We managed to change the situation in the duel during the reporting match because we just played better than our opponents. I was a little lucky, of course, but I can’t do without it either,” said the Italian specialist. Was the post interesting and helpful? Want more football news?
