Carlo Ancelotti sends warning message to Chelsea ahead of Champions League clash
Before Real Madrid and Liverpool’s match, Carlo Ancelotti warned Chelsea about the Real Madrid players.
The Champions League quarterfinal matchup between Real Madrid and Chelsea was drawn, and Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping that his team hasn’t forgotten what he warned them about.
Prior to the two teams being paired up in the Champions League once more, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti ironically sent a warning to his team based in Chelsea.
Through an aggregate victory over Liverpool earlier this week, the Spanish team secured their spot in the competition’s semifinals. Karim Benzema scored the game-winning goal at the Santiago Bernabeu after Los Blancos squeaked to a 5-2 victory during the first leg at Anfield.
Ancelotti, an Italian con artist, had cautioned his team that the match was still very much alive before the second leg in Madrid. He cited the Blues’ past encounter with Chelsea from the previous season as a cautionary tale, noting that the Blues had lost 3-1 at Stamford Bridge before coming back to win the match there.
Prior to the second leg against Liverpool, Ancelotti said, “We have the experience from last year against Chelsea. “We had a three-goal advantage, which is why we are and were favorites, but the other fact is that we still have another 90 minutes to play.
“To achieve that, we must play with the same mentality as in the first leg. Although we are in a better position, we must play the full 90 minutes at our best in order to manage the game and the outcome that we achieved. “.
With his team set to face Chelsea in the Champions League for the third consecutive season, Ancelotti will undoubtedly be hoping to avoid a similar panic this time around. The Londoners defeated German powerhouse Borussia Dortmund in the second leg to secure their spot in the round of eight.
After the draw, Blues manager Graham Potter immediately shared his thoughts on a matchup with Real Madrid. The feeling is excitement, he declared. As I previously stated, we will make an effort to win the Champions League, and I’m confident that the other seven clubs in the draw will do the same. “.
