El Clasico We’re hurting – Ancelotti gives reason Real Madrid fells 12 points behind Barca. Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti acknowledged that his team was “sad and grieving” following a devastating El Clasico loss to Barcelona.
Despite the champions’ outstanding performance on the night, the loss placed Los Blancos 12 points behind Barcelona in the fight for the championship this season.
The Italian explained why Real Madrid finds themselves so far behind in the title race while pointing out that Barcelona has been more reliable in winning matches this season.
“It’s easy; this season, they’ve been more reliable than we have been.
Ancelotti told reporters after the game, “We’re upset and unhappy, but we’re pleased of the performance.
Insisting that “we don’t think we deserved to lose today,” he said that Los Blancos, who had their second goal of the game disallowed following a protracted VAR review, are now playing football in their typical manner.
“Just after the World Cup, our January let us down a lot. We’re performing well right now, and I believe we’ll have a successful season.
The Champions League, where they have advanced to the quarterfinals, may be Ancelotti’s best chance of a successful season finale.
Real Madrid would play Chelsea in the premier competition’s quarterfinals, according to the draws made on Friday.
