Ancelotti has stressed that he has not taken the result against Liverpool for granted and does not believe that the tie is over, pointing at how Jurgen Klopp’s side could bounce back in the second leg.
The Italian explained: “This is only the first part of a knockout tie, it's gone our way, but we'll need to imagine that in the second leg, we'll have to suffer and work hard.
“Obviously we didn't expect to start like we did but at 2-0 down I thought about the City away leg last year in the hope that we could do the same - but it turned out even better. They were doing us damage down our left but when we were better in our attacks, we moved Valverde a little bit towards that danger and we then defended better.
“Liverpool is a great team which made us suffer in the first half so I'd say that, unfortunately, this tie isn't finished. No way.”
