“It is a very important victory, very difficult, very complicated. A complete performance even though I saw mistakes. The team had a good attitude,” said Ancelotti. “My team knew we had to suffer and suffer we did — I liked that a lot. This team does not have only quality, it has commitment and that is the most important thing.”
Real is second in the group behind Moldovans Sheriff Tiraspol, who stunned Shakhtar Donetsk with a 2-0 win on their tournament debut. Tiraspol then travelled to Madrid while Shakhtar and Inter will look to get their first points on the board when they meet in Ukraine.
“Real and Inter are the two favourites for the group but we have taken the advantage with this win. Nobody expected Sheriff to beat Shakhtar. You need to always be careful,” Ancelotti told Amazon Prime.
