UCL ‘This tie isn’t finished, no way’ – Ancelotti fears Liverpool comeback

Liverpool can upset Real Madrid, according to Carlo Ancelotti, despite having a three-goal edge.
Despite their three-goal victory, Carlo Ancelotti believes the tie is still open despite his team’s outstanding performance in coming back from a two-goal deficit.

Darwin Nunez’s goal gave Liverpool the lead in the fourth minute, and Mohamed Salah added to it ten minutes later.

Prior to netting the equalizer in the 36th minute, Vinicius kicked off Real Madrid’s comeback in the 21st minute.

Although Liverpool lost a two-goal lead on Tuesday night at Anfield, Real Madrid prevailed 5-2, giving them the advantage going into the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Darwin Nunez’s goal gave Liverpool the lead in the fourth minute, and Mohamed Salah added to it ten minutes later.

Prior to netting the equalizer in the 36th minute, Vinicius kicked off Real Madrid’s comeback in the 21st minute.

Just after the break, Eder Militao gave Carlo Ancelotti’s team the lead, setting the tone for the ensuing 45 minutes. After Karim Benzema scored in the 55th minute, the advantage was further widened. The Frenchman further damaged Liverpool by scoring twice in the 81st minute of the match to make it 5-2.

Due to their shaky start, the victorious manager Carlo Ancelotti thinks it was a challenging victory, but he insists his team never wavered since they were confident.

It’s difficult to win like this, especially given how the game started, according to Ancelotti, as quoted by the BBC.

“We never lost faith in ourselves, and we gradually gained possession of the ball. Up forward, we worked well together, and Vinicius Junior gave a fantastic performance.

Despite their rocky start against Liverpool today, Ancelotti also asserted that his team’s comeback victory over Manchester City in the semifinal last season offered him hope. He described the tactical adjustments he had made, saying that in order to deal with the risks posed by Liverpool’s onslaught, Valverde had to be dropped deeper on the right wing.

We obviously didn’t anticipate having such a poor start, but at 2-0 down, I tried to remember the City away leg from a year ago in the hopes that we could pull something similar off. Instead, it worked even better. They were damaging us on our left, but after improving our attacks, we pushed Valverde closer to the threat, which helped us defend better.

Carlo Ancelotti stated that he anticipates a challenging second leg at home, where his players will have to put in a lot of effort to complete the task they have begun.

He noted that Liverpool’s superiority had them on the ropes in the early half of the first leg, and that they were very capable of inflicting harm on them in the second match.

While the first leg of a knockout tie has gone in our favor, we must keep in mind that the second leg will need sacrifice and hard work.

I’d say that, regrettably, this match isn’t over since Liverpool is a great team that hurt us in the first half. No way. Rodrygo deserves appreciation for doing outstanding work all throughout the pitch and delivering exactly what I asked of him.

On March 3, Liverpool would play Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
