Carlo Ancelotti insists Bayern Munich can still turn around their Champions League quarter-final tie at the Bernabeu despite their 2-1 first-leg defeat at home to Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired Real Madrid.
He, however, said Bayern still has the chance of progressing ahead of Real Madrid.
After a first half which saw the German dominating and leading at the break, Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo came back with a different game plan to score two crucial away goals - his 99th and 100th in UEFA's clubs competitions the highest in history.
"We did it again and I was very happy for scoring two goals because it helped Madrid win".
The first half of the match was a typical Ronaldo moments, full of shouting and pouting about things not going his way. "I am very happy about that record and the fact he is so motivated to be on top".
Bayern, who had thrashed English club Arsenal 10-2 on aggregate to take their place in the last eight, went in front after 26 minutes through a bullet header from Arturo Vidal.
Favour began to swing in the way of Madrid as Ronaldo levelled the scores early in the second half and settled the affair with the victor in the 77th minute, just 15 minutes after Javier Martinez received a red card.
Real pressed home the numerical advantage as Ronaldo tapped the ball between the legs of Bayern's goalkeeper Manuel Neuer for the victor on 77 minutes. Hopefully, it will be another great game and that Real Madrid can demonstrate they can win the Champions League and a League title in the same year.
Bayern suffered a blow before kick-off when top-scorer Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 38 goals this season, dropped out with a bruised shoulder and Thomas Muller deputised as striker. "It's not the first time and it won't be the last", Ancelotti said of the missed penalty, calling it one of the "small details" which decided the game. I'm very pleased to be back and that I can play in Madrid. We showed patience and we showed the willingness to get the right result. "He was happy, but not so much because he knew he could have scored a third", the Frenchman revealed. We scored, Bayern played with one less and it would've been easier with one more.
Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale will miss the game against Bayern Munich and possibly Barcelona after picking up a knock to his calf - as reported by Marca. "He doesn't feel so good, we hope it's nothing major", he said.
"It was a great honour to score 100 goals in Europe", he said.
"Their goalkeeper saved lots of chances".style="text-align: center;"
