Ancelotti: Real Must be 'Vigilant' in Second-Leg

MOST COMMENTED

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said his men will have to be “vigilant” in the second-leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal series against Borussia Dortmund next Tuesday after taking a 3-0 lead in the first game at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night. Speaking to reporters after the game, the Italian insisted that the series was not over.

“[Dortmund] will try everything to come back. That’s normal,” Ancelotti said. “We have to be vigilant. Simply, if we play the same way we did today we can reach the semifinal.” He added: “We’ve responded well [to losing to Barcelona and Sevilla in the league]. But it’s clear we haven’t completely forgotten those results because we have paid dearly. We aren’t top of the League but we have time.” If we win every game until the end of the season we’ll win the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.”

Ancelotti also maintained that Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored Real’s third goal, was substituted late in the game because of tactical reasons rather than the knee problem that he has been carrying for several games. “I’m more worried about the second-leg [than Cristiano],” he said. “Cristiano has a nuisance in his knee. At the moment we don’t mind the hassle of it.”
