LONDON -- You wonder what went through Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti's head as the half-time whistle blew at Wembley on Saturday night. His team, the heavy favorites and finalists in six of the last 10 years (and winners each time), could well have been two or three goals down against Borussia Dortmund, the Bundesliga's perpetual underachievers.

It was up to him to fix it. We don't know what he said, but you assume not very much. Maybe it was a bit like that scene in Pulp Fiction, where the guy unloads his gun at Samuel L Jackson, Real Madrid had escaped unscathed.
