Real Madrid impressed many with their game and return to the match. Although they lost 3-0, they managed to return to the match with Rodrygo's goal and eventually advance to the semifinals. Real's coach Carlo Ancelotti was overjoyed after the pass.
"We won because we had the energy to revive the game. The changes gave us that energy. We didn't deserve a 2-0 deficit. We suffered after the break because we lacked a defense specialist from them, Militao. We suffered a lot, but that's Normal.
Chelsea are a great team I don't think we were hungry enough for a goal because we didn't need it in the beginning But we deserved the next round.The 3-0 lead freed us and the Bernabeu magic came to light, the magic of this club "Carlo Ancelotti said
Rodrygo and Camavinga impact
Ancelotti showed experience by introducing 2 players to the game: Rodrygo and Camavinga "I had to be calm and composed, to think carefully about what to do.
I put in Camavinga and Rodrigo to breathe energy into the team. Chelsea was worn out and under a lot of pressure and that gave us an advantage in overtime. We were fresher. The first time Rodrygo made a difference after entering the game, he did the same against Paris Saint-Germain.
He is young, an important part of this team ... He needs more time to mature, but I am very pleased with what he provides. About Camavinga ... His quality, energy ... He can also be a starter ", - added Ancelotti Villareal is also in the semi finals, to everyone's surprise.
Ancelotti congratulated Unai Emery "Congratulations to Unai (Emery). I am happy for Villarreal, I am really happy for them. We gave a great encouragement to the representatives of Spain. I've heard stories of Spanish clubs being inferior to English ones, and here are two Spanish teams in the semi-finals.
" "No one can claim that we will not be winners. No one can also say that we will win it. Today we have shown that we are capable of competing to the last step," Ancelotti concluded. Interesting semifinals are waiting for us
