Carlo Ancelotti expressed his satisfaction with Real Madrid's performance tonight:

The team is in a good condition. We keep playing well and winning, and we will prepare the final well, no matter who our rivals will be,

Although Sergio Ramos left the field earlier, his participation in the final should not be compromised:

We are not worried about Ramos. He seems to have suffered a muscular overcharge but he should be ready to play on Saturday.

There were also words about Casillas and Ronaldo:

Cruz Azul could have shortened our gap, but fortunately Casillas blocked the penalty kick. He is doing a great job.

Ronaldo played well. It is not normal for him to leave the game without a goal, but he gave two assists, so it's fine.

Finally, our coach shared some general thoughts on his time in Real Madrid:

I never imagined we would be able to lift four trophies in my first whole year here.

Casillas also talked to the press after the game, and expressed his happiness about the team's performance and his own, and also praised Ronaldo for his good job favouring the team.
