Our supporters helped us a lot when we were suffering. As well as the break between two halves – we managed to modify the defense, and we were great offensively,” said Ancelotti, AS reports.
“We still have to improve and balance defense and attack so that matches don’t get complicated, but the team showed great attacking quality with [Karim] Benzema, [Luka] Modric, Vinicius and [Eden] Hazard. Vinicius is doing really well at the start of the season. He has confidence and calm. Eden [Hazard] didn’t score but he was great especially interacting with Benzema. It was a great match and it should be like this coming back to the Santiago Bernabeu, everyone came out happy,” – he stated.
