Ancelotti said in a press conference after the meeting: “What can Real Madrid do in the second leg? In the first 20 minutes we could have done better, but we controlled the ball well, and then we started to take control of the situation. We needed to find the ball more and try to keep it, which we will try to improve in the second leg.
And he continued: “We have more time to prepare well for the second leg and we will be better for the match on Wednesday and we will do our best to qualify and we are confident of winning.”
He concluded: “We should be able to play the way we do today. They pressed well, but the team strategy was good and our plan to handle the pressure from such a good team worked. Defensively, we controlled well. In the second half, the game was completely different. We are pleased with the result.
