Carlo Ancelotti shows hope of being champion with Real Madrid despite a new setback against Betis
The Real Madrid coach was clear about the chances of becoming champion in LaLiga of Spain, a tournament that is commanded by FC Barcelona at the moment
After a 0-0 draw at Betis , the Italian coach of Real Madrid did not give up and explained that it is still “possible” to fight to win LaLiga Santander , despite the fact that after the result he was 9 points behind the leader, Barcelona.
In addition, the Italian stressed that this option “ is not impossible; it is very difficult”, but they have no “doubts” that they will try “until the end”.
For the Madrid coach, the match against Betis was difficult, because it could be done better, more efficiently up front, and he stressed after the game that his players came out well from behind and between the lines, but it has lacked efficiency, one less center, one less filtered ball…”.
He insisted on the lack that he sees in his team, the absence of a goal, indicating that in the last three games they have scored a goal and set pieces, so what is missing is quite evident.
“We have to be more effective. Sometimes the rival team closes, but we have the quality and we have to do better. More efficiency and less dribbling, more forceful, you can shoot from the outside. It is an aspect that we have to improve”, he asserted.
The Italian coach also highlighted that they have lost speed in the transition and that, if they recover the ball, “you have to put it up quickly, but we like to touch it a little more”, he admitted .
“I think the difficulties we have are clear and we have to try to improve . Now we have a week of work and we have to improve these aspects. The match has been open, we thought that more damage could be generated in transition. I think that more damage could be done when the game was open and we have not done it, ”he lamented.
