UCL Leg 2 – Quarterfinals

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Real Madrid

Borussia had many chances to level up 3-0 against Real Madrid who conceded numerous occasions on goals.

Coach Ancelotti reacts:

“After the missed penalty, we got scared. The first half was hard. At the break I didn’t have to give them a stern talking to. The side was sad, low on confidence, they needed animating and we changed a little, putting Bale on the right and Isco on the left. Things got better in the second half”.

“At this point of the competition all games are exciting and difficult. They tried everything, we helped to open the tie up but luckily we’re in the semi-finals and that’s good. I think the side is alright and it might be that to improve we needed to have a game like this and suffer”.

“Casillas made a great save at a very important moment in the game. Cristiano was fine, we didn’t want to risk him, we hope he gets better soon and will be ready for the semi-final”.
