Real Madrid No2 Davide Ancelottirevealed how Toni Rudiger ended up taking a penalty in their shootout win against Manchester City.

Real reached the Champions League semifinals after knocking out City in Manchester.

Ancelotti recalled: “When there were four or five minutes to go I started to think.

“Jude Bellingham is a shooter, Luka Modric is a shooter, Lucas Vazquez is very good, Nacho has experience and personality and in training we saw that he was determined. Antonio is a player with skills…. Federico should have been the fifth, but he told me he was very tired and it was the truth, he was dead.
