MADRID, March 6 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, was “affected” by his team’s lack of goals after the draw (0-0) against Real Betis this Sunday, which does not prevent them from continuing to fight for LaLiga Santander, although they will have than “do better”.
“It was an open game and that’s how we wanted it to be. We lacked efficiency up front. In the end, in the last thirty minutes we created more chances, but at this moment we lack efficiency. We make one more pass than we should, too many walls. Today we have been able to score because we have had three or four clear chances, but in the last three games the data is clear: we have only scored one goal”, he said at a press conference.
The Madrid coach valued a good performance at the back but erratic in attack at the Benito Villamarín, where they left two points with which the leader FC Barcelona leaves in nine. “I don’t see the League lost. The advantage is big, 9 points, but we have to fight until the end. I don’t know what will happen, but there are many games ahead. What is evident is that we have to do better”, he stated .
“I am more affected than angry. It is not normal that a team with this quality has not scored more than one goal in the last three games. The players are also affected because we have the quality to score and we have always done so. We need to be more effective. We try to dribble when we shouldn’t or throw a pass when we should shoot at goal. It’s a collective problem of individual decisions”, he added.
In addition, Ancelotti was asked about Asensio not entering the match. “I had Rodrygo, Karim and Vini Jr. I thought Rodrygo was doing well and Karim and Vini jr. They can always appear. I thought I could find a solution without him”, he finished.
