Ancelotti explains tactical 'gamble' in 'historic' Liverpool win

“We suffered. We can’t start games like that. We do this often,” Carlo Ancelotti said after the game, as quoted by Managing Madrid.

“When we managed to get out of Liverpool’s press we grew into the game. We improved defensively too. Our players were very accurate in front of goal.

“Such a historic night. It would’ve been difficult to predict this. It was more of an open game than the final. We gambled on that. We wanted to increase our chances of scoring.

“Rodrygo was very good defensively too.”

Madrid’s defence were carved open a number of times early on and Liverpool went 2-0 ahead, and deservedly so.

Yet the Whites did not give up and equalised before the break with Vinicius bagging a brace, setting the stage for a brilliant second half in which they scored three more goals to win the game 5-2.
