@willfranklin213 obviously doesnt tell full story, but at that time of the game probably good to be keeping possession / calming things down
In Bale's 21 mins on pitch he attempted 14 passes, and completed just three, for rate of 27% !
UEFA stats say Ronaldo completed just 10 passes [of 12 attempted] v Bayern, but had 5 shots [4 on target] in 74 mins on pitch.
Ronaldo: "1-0 is a good result. We have a good advantage and if we score it gets difficult for them. We go there confident."
Who didnt want you to play Ronaldo? "That is something else, we should just be happy now. We won. It has passed. Cristiano is back."
Ronaldo in mixed-zone: "There were some people who did not want me to play. They were afraid, that is normal, but I showed I am fine."
Ancelotti also... “Pepe has a bang, nothing too serious.”
Seemed Ancelotti couldnt bring himself to say team was better w/o both Bale & Ronaldo hanging up front, but...
RT @Thiago6: We will fight to be in the final in our Stadium and with our fans. Munich will decide...! Let's go @FCBayern !!! #MiaSanMia
Ancelotti: “On Tues we need it all, work, sacrifice, courage. Tie is still open, we've small advantage, but nobody knows what'll happen”
