Champions League: Why We Beat Man City 3-1 – Ancelotti

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has admitted they needed a bit of luck to eliminate Manchester City from the Champions League.

The newly-crowned LaLiga champions lost 4-3 at the Etihad last week and were widely expected to lose out to City.

Although Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring for the Premier League champions, Madrid fought back to win 3-1 and qualify for the final.

“To explain it, it’s not that simple.

“Just when everyone thought City were through, one little detail can change everything.

“To win a game like this, you also have to have a bit of luck,” Ancelotti told the media afterwards.

Los Blancos will now face Liverpool in the final on May 28.
