Ancelotti acknowledges Real Madrid’s punishment by two Manchester City stars




Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti praised the thrilling display of football witnessed during the six-goal spectacle between his team and Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabeu. Despite the intense back-and-forth, ending in a 3-3 draw, Ancelotti emphasized the quality showcased by both sides.

Ancelotti admitted that Real Madrid was punished by two stunning goals from Manchester City stars Phil Foden and Josko Gvardiol. Foden’s thunderous strike into the top corner and Gvardiol’s sublime long-range effort highlighted the technical brilliance of Guardiola’s squad.

Reflecting on the match, Ancelotti expressed satisfaction with his team’s performance, particularly their energy in pressing upfront and their ability to equalize after falling behind. However, he acknowledged missed opportunities and the need to capitalize on them in the return leg at the Etihad Stadium.


Despite the draw, Ancelotti remains confident in his team’s ability to replicate their performance in Manchester. Real Madrid will aim to exploit their chances better and overcome the small disadvantage as they seek progression to the next round of the Champions League.

The second leg promises another thrilling encounter as both teams vie for a spot in the semi-finals.
