Real Madrid have forgotten last season’s heavy defeat at Manchester City in the Champions League as they prepare to return to The Etihad for their quarter-final, second leg on Wednesday, coach Carlo Ancelotti said.

Last term, Real played out a 1-1 home draw with City in the semi-final, first leg before being thrashed 4-0 by Pep Guardiola’s side, who won the competition for the first time.

Last week Real and City slugged out a 3-3 draw in a rip-roaring quarter-final, first-leg clash in Madrid.

City have won their last three home matches against Real, and Wednesday’s game is likely to be entertaining after their last five meetings produced a total of 23 goals.

The Italian added that facing City again did not worry him.
