Ancelotti reveals Chelsea’s advantage for second leg in Madrid

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has said that UEFA scrapping the away goal rule in European competitions will be an advantage to Chelsea in the second leg of their quarter-final tie.

The LaLiga leaders defeated the Blues 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Ahead of the reverse fixture in Spain, Ancelotti, a former Chelsea manager, is refusing to underestimate the reigning European champions.

“I think Chelsea is a fantastic team, with fantastic players.

“I still think that the next game will be tough against them. For this, we are focused.

“We clearly have the lead, but the outcome is still open. The fact that the away-goal rule is gone is an advantage for Chelsea. We respect them a lot because they are a good team.

“Tonight Madrid was the better team, but there will be another match and anything can happen,” Ancelotti said.
