Ancelotti who had a chat with the press after the match stated reasons his side progressed into the next round.
“We always have to be calm and evaluate everything even after the 3-0 result. I put Rodrygo and Camavinga to revitalize the team. Chelsea’s tiredness in extra time gave us the advantage,”
“We won because we were fueled by energy, especially in the last minutes, and the changes were made to bring energy. I substituted Nacho and Vinicius because they weren’t able to continue, the match was going to be difficult because we didn’t deserve 2-0 down,” Ancelotti said.
