Ancelotti changes tactics before the rematch with City, Real only thinks about the final

The Italian is determined to win another Champions League final

Real football coach Carlo Ancelotti said before the game with Manchester City that his team can play better than in the first meeting in Madrid.

On Wednesday, Manchester City’s players welcome Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals. In the first match in Madrid, the score was 1:1.

“As usual. We will try to get the most out of the players on an individual and team level. I think we can do better than in the first match. This is a game that is on our minds for a very long time,” said the Italian expert.

Ancelotti will change his tactics compared to the first match.

“We are dangerous on the counterattack, but in the first match we didn’t have much space for them, so I don’t expect a match with a lot of transition play.” City had problems getting the ball back in possession when we were building play from the back line. That’s why we will try to keep the ball as long as possible and reduce the risk.”

Ancelotti has been bringing trophies to Real for years.

“This is my fourth year at the club. I enjoy every day. My legacy is to enjoy every day. This year we are well on our way to achieving something really important. We are very excited and very motivated, although we have a lot of hard work ahead of us. But the weight of every challenge makes us better.”

He also explained the change compared to last season.

“Last year, playing with Valverde on the wing won us the Champions League trophy. This season, the situation with Rodrigo (changed his position) led us to not conceding a goal. I have already decided which line-up I will go with.”

He doesn’t think about penalties.

“I’m not thinking about it. If it comes down to it, the reality is that you can’t over train for it. Because the atmosphere in the stadium will not be the same as in training. We only think about how to win.”

The Italian expert has a good feeling before the rematch.

“I am very calm, excited and have good faith.” The feelings are mixed, I have good and bad: that Holland will score, that De Bruyne will hit our net from distance… I will have to think about Vinicius dribbling, that Karim will score… It is not easy to get to where we are and enjoy the moment “, concluded Ancelotti.
