Ancelotti reveals Real Madrid’s chances of winning the league and shocks Barcelona!

Real Madrid coach Ancelotti said in a post-match press conference: “Is La Liga over? Not yet. We don’t think about it like that, maybe this week we can work harder to come back better. The big advantage is that the difference is currently 9 points. We must fight to the end.

And he continued: “The chances of La Liga are alive? It’s possible. But it became very difficult, but we must fight to the end. He must influence the results so that the team gets better.

He continued: “It was a difficult match because he could be more effective in the offensive line. In the last 3 matches, we scored only one goal, and then from free kicks. It is clear what is missing and what needs to be improved, we need to be more efficient, as before.

And the Real Madrid coach continued: “We need to play with less dribbling and more shooting from the outside. We have lost speed in our movements. When we get the ball back we need more possession and we need to improve that. For the first time we will have a week of work to improve and get back on track.

He added: “We wanted to play a match like this because we can do more damage during the transition period. In the second half, we controlled more, but did not use chances.

And he added: “Rodrigo started as a midfielder, and then Ceballos came in and I put him as a right winger so he could press more. In the center, I tried to rely more on Valverde.

He continued: “These latest results should impress us. It’s not normal that we only scored one set-piece in 3 games after we scored 5 at Anfield against Liverpool. What happens is rare and needs to improve.

He continued: “Asensio? He didn’t play because we had Rodrigo, Karim and Vinicius ahead of us. It’s hard to say why. I thought I could really count on it, but I thought I could find a solution without it.

He continued, “It was an open game and that’s what we wanted. We lacked efficiency ahead. In the last 30 minutes we were in constant control of the ball, and at the beginning of the game it was open, you could score goals, and we had to make better use of these moments.

And he emphasized: “Today we could score, because we had 3-4 clean and realized chances, but in the last 3 matches the data was clear: we scored one goal from a set piece. There is a lack of balance, because now we are far behind and have been badly at the forefront lately and all these things need to be improved as quickly as possible.

The Italian coach said: “Camavinga change? The change happened because Camavinga had a yellow card and I wanted to give more energy to Ceballos’ entry. I changed the system to 4-3-3 and Rodrigo played more up front. In the end we did well, but we need to create more chances and score goals.

He added: “The recent results touched me rather than pissed me off. Rarely a team of this level can score more than 1 goal in 3 matches. These results affect the players.

And he added: “Sometimes we choose not the best solution. Militao had a great game against Rudiger but we didn’t score. This is not an individual problem, but a collective one, and this week we will try to work on it better.

He concluded: “The composition seems normal to me. This team scored 5 goals at the Anvid stadium. The situation is strange and rare because of the scoring situation, but we will work and improve.
