Ancelotti later said: “I was really angry at half-time and I decided to take a risk and press high up. We weren’t being forceful enough in our duels and I told them to wake up, there was still time to come back.
“They definitely woke up. It wasn’t a good first half and we can’t be playing like that. In the second period, it was an incredible reaction, as it always it. This club never gives up but we can’t wait until near the end of the game to react.
“We played a very poor first half and quite an unexpected second because it’s difficult to switch the dynamic like that after the first half we saw. The team showed great personality to turn things around. The second half is fantastic for our confidence. We didn’t give up and I’m sure you guys have had to change your articles.”
On matchwinner Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio, he added: “They really changed the game. They brought more quality and energy to the pitch. They were absolutely key in turning the score and the tie around.”
