Real Madrid will battle Premier League leaders Manchester City in the semi-finals after eliminating Chelsea in a tough quarter-final clash. Los Blancos have experienced difficult draws in each of the competition’s stages this campaign, having already beaten PSG and Chelsea in the first two rounds. Carlo Ancelotti and his squad will face substantial tests in playing Pep Guardiola’s team.
The manager was also queried about Kylian Mbappe’s destiny, who has been prominently speculated with a switch to Real Madrid in the summer. Ancelotti dodged openly responding to the question, instead of complimenting president Florentino Perez, stressing that the team’s potential is promising because of him.
“Kylian Mbappé future? The future of Madrid, thanks to Florentino, will be of a high level beyond the players who come. The club will have a new stadium and will continue to make history there,” Ancelotti told Radio Rai.
Real Madrid strengthen their cushion to 15 points with six games left to play following strikes from Rodrygo, Nacho Fernandez, and Benzema in the 92nd minute versus Sevilla. On Sunday, Karim Benzema accomplished yet another remarkable Real Madrid comeback, this occasion overcoming Sevilla 3-2 in La Liga. Madrid surprised Sevilla to seal the victory which would almost likely win them La Liga, after beating Chelsea 3-0 on Tuesday and clinching a ticket to the Champions League semi-finals. Failing would’ve offered the chasing party beacon of hope, given Sevilla and Barcelona were both 12 points adrift at the beginning of the day, with Barcelona possessing two games in hand.
