Ancelotti: 'If Man City score, let them do it early in the game'

"We are not only thinking about Haaland. There's De Bruyne, Gundogan, Mahrez... It's tough. What we are clear about is that if they [Manchester City] have to score, let it be soon. That way, we'll have more time to react," Carlo Ancelotti has told the media.

"We know it's very likely City will score in the first few minutes. We all remember what happened last season. It will be an exciting game. That's for sure," the Whites' boss added.

Ancelotti probably means that Real Madrid will feel more comfortable if they concede first – we all remember how many comebacks the team have delivered after being behind.

In the first leg, the Whites opened the scoring in the first half and conceded after the break. Seems like Carlo is ready for an opposite scenario this time.
