Ancelotti: Madrid must contain Aguero

Former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti claims Sergio Aguero will need specific attention in Wednesday night's Champions League semi-final second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Manchester City ace is widely considered as one of Europe's most clinical strikers and despite his tally of two goals in eight appearances in the competition this season, Ancelotti feels he's the danger man for Manuel Pellegrini side – and with the tie evenly poised at 0-0 after the first leg at the Etihad, a solitary goal could be detrimental to Los Blancos' chances.

"He is a very good striker," the Italian told Goal. "Real Madrid has to be aware of him because he could easily score at the Bernabeu. It won't be easy stopping him.

"In the first game, Ramos and Pepe had him under control and I hope in the second game the same thing happens. It won't be easy for Real Madrid.

"Manchester City played a great first half in the first game but in the second they felt a bit tired. We'll see."
