Ancelotti: After the 2-0 I thought about the away game against Man City last year. It turned out even better in the end.

Real Madrid crushed Liverpool, trailing 0-2 by the 14th minute

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Anchelotti commented victory in the first leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League With Liverpool (5:2).

“It is not easy to get such victories, primarily because of the way this match started. But we never lost confidence and little by little we got the ball under control. Overall, it was an incredible performance by our team.”

“Of course we didn’t expect to start the way we started, but after 0-2 I thought about the away game against Man City last year and hoped we could do the same. In the end it turned out even better. They gave us problems on the left, but when we started to play better in attacks, we moved Valverde a little to this zone, after which we became better defensively.

“We only played the first part of this confrontation. Today we have achieved success, but we need to prepare that in the second match we will have to endure and work a lot.”

Recall that in the first semi-final match of the 2021/22 Champions League against Manchester City, the Madrid club also lost at the beginning of the meeting 0:2, but eventually lost 3:4.

The return match between Real Madrid and Liverpool will take place on March 15 in Madrid. The game starts at 22:00 Kyiv time.
