The impressive match between Real Madrid and AC Milan ended with a 1-1 tie, and a good football show for the fans. The great performance of both teams comfirmed the rivalty showed weeks ago at the Bernabeu.
French star Karim Benzema opened the score for Madrid after a great move made by Kaka. But Ronaldinho scored the 1-1 with a penalty shot and proved that he is playing at his best level again.
Pellegrini had a really tough week and was satisfied with the performance of his team: "I'm happy because I think we played well. We didn't lose, but we are still on course for finishing top of the group. Normally, I am happy if the result reflects what we did on the field. But tonight definitely didn't reflect what we did."
Milan coach Leonardo was happy as well: “They played better in the first half, created spaces and chances. We were too deep. I'd say the second half was the opposite, as we had the better of it and overall the draw is the fai result for what we saw. To be honest, we feel a bit of regret, as I felt we could get the three points and strike them at the right time. I'm happy with the way the squad did it tonight.”
