The coach of Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti, made it clear that for the club and the team “it is a success” both to play in the final of this edition of the Champions League, “the most important game in world football”, and to do so for the fifth time “in eight years”, and assured that “the enthusiasm and motivation is great”.

“The competition every year in Europe is going to increase and there are many teams that have a very clear goal of winning the Champions League.

“The excitement and motivation is great, we played the most important game in world football and we are going to give it our all.
