UCL: Why we beat Chelsea – Real Madrid coach, Ancelotti
Real Madrid boss, Carlo Ancelotti has explained why his team defeated Chelsea 2-0 in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final first-leg fixture.
Ancelotti said Real Madrid won against Chelsea because his players played a very well-rounded game against Frank Lampard’s side.
Two goals from Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio gave Real Madrid the victory over Chelsea at Santiago Bernabeu.
Speaking at this post-match press conference after the game, Ancelotti said, “We played a very well-rounded game.
“We suffered somewhat at the beginning, but the objective was to get ahead and that is what we did. We will have to suffer there because Chelsea have a very good team with very good players, and we’ve another 90 minutes to endure.
“We are satisfied with the result and the performance”.
Real Madrid will now face Chelsea in the return leg at Stamford Bridge next week.
