Il Secolo XIX in high cut: “Ancelotti, fifth seal. The Champions League goes to Real”

Real Madrid wins the Champions League. Carlo Ancelotti’s team beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at Wembley to win the cup for the 15th time in its history. An important success also for the coach who, between player (two) and coach (five), raised the trophy seven times. This is the headline on the front page of today’s edition The 19th Century: “Ancelotti, fifth seal. The Champions League goes to Real.”

Ancelotti’s comment
These are the words of the Real Madrid coach at the end of the match: “It was a difficult match, especially in the first part. Then we managed to raise the pace, intensity and concentration and we did better in the second part. In a final it’s crucial to count on players who come off the bench, but now everything goes into the background: we’re too happy.”
