It is believed that the gods of football have chosen their base camp. Nothing can happen to Real Madrid here at the Bernabéu. Here you are in the temple of the irrational, in the sanctuary of miracles, here anything can happen if it benefits the merengue. This Tuesday against Chelsea (2-3) a new “noche mágica” awaited the Madrid fans who frankly were restless for 80 minutes. But as long as Real isn’t dead…
“Don’t mess with the ROI“, we could read on the giant Madrid tifo before the kick-off of this quarter-final. A way of saying that you have to bow at the Bernabéu. Chelsea have done the opposite, martyring the giants Madrid and their audience. From From the first period to at the beginning of the last quarter of an hour it was an amorphous real, obsolete, without ideas and without a leader who seemed doomed to hell.
The cheat sheet: It’s no longer a miracle, it’s an ability

Benzema, Kanté, Camavinga: How the French tipped the game
We are used to suffering
“Honestly, it’s insane‘ admitted an Edouardo Camavinga, captivated by such an atmosphere.It’s amazing to spend another night like this at the BernabéuNacho recognized Movistar’s microphone. With another crazy reaction from the team to qualify us for the semifinals. It’s like facing PSG, you get goosebumps every time you experience that kind of night at the Bernabéu“.
But how do they do it every time? To this question Luka Modric explained everything: unshakable confidence in their qualities, blind faith in the winning destiny of this Real. “We suffered but we didn’t let go until the endguessed the Croatian. Even at 0-3 we didn’t have a bad game but Chelsea did everything they could and we kept fighting, we knew we could turn things around. The coach made some good changes that turned the game around. We are used to suffering, it has happened to us many times: Bayern, Juve, Ajax, Schalke… and tonight is different“.
10 halves in… twelve years
A sentiment echoed by Nacho, who has been at the club since he was 11 years old. “This is Real Madridhe said. We have been taught since childhood that we should never give up. Reaching the final is in the DNA of this club. We proved it once again at home with our supporters. Goal achieved. Real are ready to fight anyone, you always have to believe in this team because even if we didn’t pass, we give everything on the pitch every time“.
The result is constant consistency at the highest level. For the 10th time in 12 years, Real will see the last four of the C1. Even AC, even reliant almost entirely on aging but still magical warriors. But if Madrid is still alive, it’s also thanks to a bit of magic. That of the Bernabéu, where Carlo Ancelotti never tires.
“How to explain this magic of the Bernabeu? It is very difficult to put into wordshe explained to Sky Italia. Something happens when you enter this stage. The crowd, the players… Who would have thought we’d go 0-3? I, I believed in it. Because Real Madrid never dies“.
