UCL: We couldn’t control him – Ancelotti names Chelsea player that troubled Real Madrid

Real Madrid boss, Carlo Ancelotti has admitted Real Madrid struggled to deal with Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante.

La Liga giants still managed to beat the Blues in front of Stamford Bridge supporters to move to the semi-finals of the competition on Tuesday.

They had beaten Frank Lampard’s side 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu last week but the Blues began the second like they meant business and should have taken the lead as Kante and Marc Cucurella missed two excellent chances.

Real Madrid came back stronger in the second half with Rodrygo scoring a brace to silence the Stamford Bridge crowd.

“I think that we suffered the position of Kante, that wasn’t right,” Ancelotti said after the game.

“Camavinga was used to put pressure on Reece James on the left and we had difficulty controlling the position of Kante…”
