Speaking to Diario AS after the match, Ancelotti also admitted that his team faced a very strong opponent.
Ancelloti said, “It was a good match with a lot of intensity, especially in the first half. I thought it was an even game.
“I tried to spread out the minutes because of everyone’s physical condition.
