Ekun Samuel, 23 April 2015.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelloti said before the match that he has the best squad in the world to defeat Atletico who they defeated last season to clinch the champions league. But this season hasn't been so has they have met seven times before this game and Madrid has failed to beat them. Carlo Ancelloti has to put faith in his reserve to break the steel defense of Atletico Madrid which Diego Simeone said he believed in. Madrid played their heart out to earn a victory as a late goal by loaned Manchester United striker Chicarito put them in the semi- final by scoring the only goal of the match in the 88th minute after the second booking of Ardan Turan that got him sent off in the 76th minute of the game. Now the hopes of reaching Berlin is not insurmountable for Madrid. This is Madrid fifth semi-final in a row.
