Carlo Ancelotti, manager of Real Madrid, has stated that UEFA’s decision to abolish the away goal rule in European games will benefit Chelsea in the second leg of their quarter-final encounter.
On Wednesday night, the LaLiga leaders crushed the Blues 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.
Ancelotti, a former Chelsea manager, is refusing to overlook the defending European champions ahead of the rematch in Spain.
“I think Chelsea is a fantastic team, with fantastic players.
“I still think that the next game will be tough against them. For this, we are focused.
“We clearly have the lead, but the outcome is still open. The fact that the away-goal rule is gone is an advantage for Chelsea. We respect them a lot because they are a good team.
“Tonight Madrid was the better team, but there will be another match and anything can happen,” Ancelotti said.
