Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, did insist he was happy with the two-goal margin of victory and shrugged off suggestions they should have killed the tie at his post match press conference.
The former Chelsea boss told BT Sport: “Don’t forget that Chelsea has a good team and good players.
“We won 2-0 and we took advantage of this game.
“It’s not done yet. We have to fight and sacrifice at Stamford Bridge. This is absolutely normal. It’s the quarter-final of the Champions League.
“We are satisfied with the game. It was a good game and now we focus on the next one.
“My players understand there is another 90 minutes to play. It will be difficult and we have to be ready.”
His opposite number, Frank Lampard knows from his own experiences as a player that “special things can happen at Stamford Bridge” as he remained positive even after the 2-0 loss on Wednesday night.
“But I just said to the players that special things can happen at Stamford Bridge. They are a very good team, but we have to believe”.
Despite Chelsea’s problems in front of goal, Lampard is still positive things could turnaround in the second leg next Tuesday.
