Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti expressed dissatisfaction with his team’s performance, labeling them as “soft” for adopting a defensive stance too deep in their 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich in the Champions League semifinal first leg. Despite taking the lead through Vinicius Jr’s goal in the first half, Real conceded two quick goals early in the second half, prompting Ancelotti to criticize his team’s lack of intensity and commitment.

Ancelotti acknowledged that while the result was satisfactory, he believed his team could have performed better. He noted Bayern Munich’s superior display compared to his team’s and emphasized the need for improvement in the upcoming matches. The manager admitted that Real Madrid seemed comfortable but lacked the required intensity, allowing Bayern too many opportunities to dominate the game.

Despite defending his decision to substitute Toni Kroos, one of Real’s standout players in the match, Ancelotti explained that he made tactical changes to inject fresh energy into the team. He expressed relief that his team managed to equalize, thereby keeping the tie open for the return leg in Madrid.

Vinicius Jr emerged as Real Madrid’s hero, scoring both goals, including a crucial penalty in the 83rd minute to secure the draw. His first goal came against the run of play, capitalizing on Kroos’ precise pass. However, Bayern swiftly responded with two goals of their own before Real managed to equalize through Vinicius Jr’s penalty after Rodrygo was fouled.

The return leg promises another intense encounter, with Ancelotti acknowledging the challenging but familiar atmosphere awaiting his team in Madrid. He expressed confidence in his team’s ability to endure the pressure, with the support of their fans.
