The European champions overcame 1-0 deficit from .the first leg to reach the semis where they will face Osasuna.

Ancelotti declared afterwards: “It was a complete performance, otherwise we wouldn’t have won 4-0 here. In the first half we struggled to get the ball out, but the first goal changed the pattern of play and in the second half we caused a lot of damage with our transitions because we found more openings. What I’m most proud of is that the boiler has warmed up again and when we’re warm, we do a pretty good job.

“Our approach was the same as in the last two Clásicos. The only thing I did was add more depth to the game with Rodrygo. The minor details decided the game. The amazing detail of the first goal, which was fantastic, defined the second half.

“This wasn’t about vindication. What do I have to feel vindicated about? Nothing at all. I’m happy because I’m lucky enough to be coaching a great team at a great club. We celebrated qualification in the dressing room because it was a big challenge to come from behind and make the final. I’ll celebrate on the pitch if we win the Copa.”

On the final against Osasuna, he added: “What I said to Arrasate was a joke, but that’s the reality. We’re thrilled to be playing in the final and I’m sure Osasuna are too. It’s going to be a final with a great atmosphere.”
