UEFA Champions League

"City Played Better And Deserved To Go Through" Ancelotti Reacts To Real Madrid's Humiliating Defeat

A big game of football went down in the UEFA Champions League yesterday when Manchester City took on the Defending Champions Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium. The game turned out quite easy for Manchester City than could have been expected as they put up an outstanding performance to secure an emphatic 4-1 victory over the Los Blancos. Bernando Silva's double combined with further goals from Manuel Akanji and Julian Alvarez made sure Manchester City progressed to the UEFA Champions League final this season. On aggregate, Real Madrid were thrashed 5-1 by an incredible Manchester City side in the competition.

Well, Carlo Ancelotti was interviewed by the press after his side Real Madrid got knocked out of the competition humiliatingly by Citizens this season. The Italian Manager had a few things to say and one of them was admitting Manchester City deserved to advance to the UCL finals.

The Real Madrid Manager said and I quote "Getting into a deep analysis today isn't sensible. It is a painful defeat, very sore but it can happen in football. You get to the Champions League semi-final and if a rival this strong plays better than you, then you are left without a place in the final. City played better and deserved to go through. They really pressed us from the start of the match, and that really made it difficult to build the play we wanted to. It's time to learn from this, to think about next season, and to improve. Last season we were capable of beating them and reaching the final. This time it was City's turn".
