Ancelotti admits that the match was “even”

by archysport

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said he disagreed with his Barcelona counterpart, Xavi Hernández, saying it was a match “matched” and not “dominated in various phases” by the Catalans, as his coach said, in addition to underlining the “great quality” of his players to resolve the pass to the final of the Super Cup.

I do not agree with Xavi, the game has been even, they have used more possession and we against it. We conceded a goal due to bad luck. Neither has Madrid dominated, nor has Barcelona dominated. The fact of having lowered the defense a little was to play against, which was very effective, “analyzed the Italian.

“We have found quality plays, of great quality and the three goals we have scored are three spectacular goals. Has been an even match, really. Barcelona or Real Madrid could have won, we have seen two different characteristics of the teams, in the first half they created difficulties for us in the centers – something that Barcelona rarely does – and we we have enjoyed our quality“Ancelotti added.

“The quality that we have at the top to initiate quick attacks is too important not to enjoy it,” he added. “It is true that one of our best weapons is the cons. The low block is not very aesthetic but the quality that we have to try a fast attack is too important not to enjoy it, “he stressed.

On other issues, Ancelotti was asked about Modric’s change and Ansu Fati’s immediate goal. “It is true, Modric has an immense quality, it is difficult to pressure him, but Valverde has scored the goal that has given us the final,” he pointed out about his substitute this Wednesday. “We have to have a scale. Without Modric we are going to lose something but with Valverde we have a very fast player that reaches the opposite area as has been the case of 2-3, “he said.

Regarding Vinicius, he highlighted his “quality”, de Carvajal said that “he is not just another player” of this squad due to his “character” and he hoped to recover Alaba for the final on Sunday. “There is a lot of fatigue, it is normal, but we can all recover for Sunday. We have to recover because the physical and mental wear has been great. But we are happy and I think we are going to recover better,” he said without showing any preferences for the rival.

Finally, Ancelotti revealed whate Piqué “has explained to him that they never throw the ball out” in a play during the game. “It is respectable, the important thing was to know. I did not know, just for this” and stressed that Barcelona is growing since the arrival of Xavi to the bench. “It is a team that is improving, important players have returned. It is a very good squad, Xavi’s work is good and the team will continue to improve,” he concluded.
