t's not that Real played brilliantly against Leipzig, but victory is all that will be remembered from the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16. It was sealed by a fantastic goal from Ibrahim Diaz.

"We had a lot of difficulties, especially at the beginning of the first and second half. We could have done better, but I can draw several positive conclusions. I think Nacho and Tchouaméni worked well as a central defensive pair, and we were dangerous in transition. We could have increased our lead, but to be honest, it could have also ended in a draw," summarized Carlo Ancelotti, who particularly praised goalkeeper Lunin, who is making good use of his minutes during the absence of the injured Thibaut Courtois.

"Lunin played an excellent game, the best since we've met. He didn't get much playing time before, but now he is progressing. I think this will give him confidence," said the Italian.

This season, Lunin has made 17 appearances and conceded 13 goals. He has kept a clean sheet eight times. In his career, he has also played for Metalist, Dnipro, Zorya, Leganes, Valladolid, and Oviedo.
