“We played badly, with little intensity, with worry. “The psychological aspect really influenced our game,” Ancelotti told Movistar.

“We played against a quality team, they played carefree and we could only defend from start to finish. We suffered, but the most important thing is that we reached the quarter-finals,” said the former AC Milan, PSG and Chelsea coach.
