UEFA Champions League

Ancellotii Reveals The Player He Compares To Cristiano Ronaldo In The Ongoing UCL

Real Madrid will host Chelsea in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday evening at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid.

This comes less than a week after the first leg of this tense match was witnessed at Stanford Bridge in London. Karim Benzema scored the winning goal for Real Madrid in the third minute of the game.

In order to advance to the semifinals of this event, the defending champions Chelsea must battle and defeat Real Madrid by a score of 2-0.

When asked about one player that he compares to Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of the amount of effort he is putting in at Real Madrid during a press conference ahead of their match on Tuesday evening, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelloti admitted it was one of his players.

When it comes to domestic and European contests, Ancellotii has openly confessed that he is reliant on Karim Benzema's performance. He claims that he compares the Frenchman to Cristiano Ronaldo, who he claims was also his instrument to contend with Gareth Bale in the last several years.

"We've had Cristiano and Bale in the past," says the coach. To state that we rely on Benzema is the truth; there is no need to hide this fact from anyone. "It makes me very delighted to be able to rely on Benzema." "Says the Italian," the speaker said.
