With the away goals rule no longer in place, Real Madrid's 4-3 defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final first leg at the Etihad Stadium becomes somewhat difficult to analyse, especially with in previous years some even suggesting that a 4-3 defeat would be more beneficial than a 0-0 draw away from home.
Carlo Ancelotti enjoyed his weekend, seeing his team win the LaLiga Santander title, but he will be acutely aware that Real Madrid need to improve defensive if they are to stop the Pep Guardiola machine.
Gareth Bale is out with a back injury, whilst David Alaba has a minor muscular issue which could keep him out of the match and would be a disaster for Los Blancos in defence.
Guardiola, on the other hand, has a defensive injury crisis as he returns to Spain, with both John Stones and Kyle Walker set to be ruled out of the return leg.
Real Madrid will be hoping the celebrations of their domestic championship weren't too extensive on Saturday evening, with the prospect of reaching another Champions League final simply tantalising.
