Carlo Ancelotti said in his press conference that: “For all three forwards to score, that’s a good sign. We needed a match like this, although the first half was a difficult one too. At half time, I said that we needed to show more quality in the final third.”
“We did that and worked well. We spoke this week about how we hadn’t started some matches with the intensity needed. We’ve been better in second halves recently. Maybe the opponents play at a reduced pace in the second half and we make the most of that.”
