Real Madrid star Valverde said in press statements after the meeting: “Ancelotti? What he told us in the first half was important, he has few words but he tells you many things at the same time. He supported us at the right moments and emotionally helped us get back on track. He said before the game that we should come out with a lot of concentration, but we made mistakes and it hurt us.
He continued, “I think we knew how to move forward with great pride. At half-time we were calm and Ancelotti told us that we can win, that we have the quality to do so.
And he concluded: “To play with Modric in the center? Eventually our game changed, I tried to get a little higher to help press and get the ball back. We were very encouraged by the good performance of Vinicius, and we played more calmly and in a few touches, faster, easier, which allowed us to create more scoring chances.
