Carlo Ancelotti: Real Madrid Played Perfect Game

By on

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti lauded his team for playing the 'perfect match' against Bayern Munich in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League clash on Tuesday at Allianz Stadium.  

"We worked very well together, showing the quality we have and executed the perfect match," Ancelotti told Real Madrid's official website via ESPN FC.

"I'm not surprised. These players have done very well. It is a great happiness for all. The first half was fantastic. I thank the players and everyone. It is 12 years since Madrid played a Champions League final and it is good for everyone."

"The goals were the least important thing," he told reporters after the game. "The work of the group was the most important thing. Madrid are back where they need to be -- at the very top. It was a dream to score two goals, but the main thing is how we played as a team."

Real Madrid is waiting for the winner of the other semis fixture between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.
