Happiness is born from the womb of suffering!

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti survived a thrilling European night at the Bernabeu as his side rose to a Chelsea awakening to book their place in the Champions League semi-finals despite losing 3-2 after extra time in the second leg on Tuesday.

Real Madrid crossed to the semi-finals with a 5-4 victory on the aggregate score, five weeks after recovering from a goal delay in the second leg against Paris Saint-Germain to win 3-1 and decide his qualification in the round of 16 3-2 on the aggregate score.

“The more I suffer, the happier I am,” Ancelotti told a news conference. “I suffered a lot. We were 2-0 down (against Chelsea) but I don’t think we deserved it, the team did well. We weren’t in a rush to score, we didn’t need it, but for me Chelsea didn’t deserve to go 2-0 up.”

Ancelotti praised his players for not giving up, even after trailing 3-0 with a quarter of an hour left before Rodrygo made the aggregate score 4-4 to force extra time in which Karim Benzema scored the decisive goal.

“We won (the game) because we had the energy to keep its hopes up. The players were brave and we played like warriors,” the Italian coach said. “It was a difficult match, we knew it, but it was more complicated. After (Chelsea’s) second goal, the team suffered psychologically, but the magic of this stadium helps the players and the team a lot not to give up.”

Ancelotti said he needed to calm down and assess the squad on Wednesday to understand what really happened.

Ancelotti praised Chelsea’s ability to withstand pressure and said his team had suffered more than usual after Eder Militao, the best defender in set-pieces, was suspended.

“We have to be proud of what we’ve done, we had a very difficult last-16 match against Paris Saint-Germain and now against defending champions Chelsea to go to the semi-finals, so I couldn’t be happier.”
