"We played very well in the second half whilst a man short. We played with courage and character," said Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.
"Playing with ten is not easy and they all worked well. The match became more complicated following Sergio's red card and I expect to see him back for the round of 16."
He also highlighted the team's form: "We're on a good run, we are scoring lots of goals and playing well. We need to keep the momentum going. I'm happy right now."
