What managers say

Carlo Ancelotti: "It was a very good match [against Dortmund]. It's a good result for us after a good performance. The first half was hotly-contested as Dortmund were dangerous up front, they had good chances. [Arjen] Robben's goal was decisive, we were in control of the match after that. But it was balanced before his goal." [via ESPN]

Zinedine Zidane: "It's a tough game to read. We put in a great performance [against Atletico] but with five minutes to go we lacked that bit of concentration. You couldn't say that Atletico put in a great performance, we certainly did, but we had to get that second goal, which would have given us that peace of mind. We were then made to suffer and we didn't defend too well on one move and they are capable of making things tough for you." [via Sky Sports]
