Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has given his verdict on Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw against Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ancelotti told BT Sport: “An interesting game. Difficult for us in the first half and the second half was much better. We had good control in the game.

“When they had lots of possession we were in control defensively then when we started to play the ball we caused difficulties.

“We had to keep our positions defensively then when we got the opportunity, we scored the first goal.”

On Vinicius Junior’s goal: “Yeah a great strike, a fantastic moment. The team played well. I am satisfied.”

On defensive performance and Antonio Rudiger keeping Erling Haaland quiet: “Defensively we were good. Rudiger against Haaland did well and the midfield had control. The performance was good and we are happy. We have strong motivation for the next game.”

On why he got a yellow card: “I don’t know why. I was not on the pitch. I think he could give a yellow card to the player not the manager.”
