In the central match of the 9th round of the Spanish La Liga, Real defeated Barcelona 3:1 in El Classico. Obviously, after the game, the head coaches of the teams, Carlo Ancelotti and Xavi were in radically different moods.
Carlo Ancelotti’s comment on El Classico
Carlo Ancelotti (Real’s head coach): “In this match, everyone had to perform until the end, and that’s what happened. We started well, took the lead soon enough, and controlled the situation in the 2nd half as well.
It was clear that Militao had to put Lewandowski under maximum pressure, and through Kroos and Tchouameni, we could cope well with the opponents found between the zones.
I remember the game last season when I tried to invent something new, and then we lost by a big score, but this time, I put everything in place and did well. I should especially mention Modrić’s goal, who did not give anything to his visage”.
Xavi (Barcelona’s head coach): “I am very worried about the fact that we did not play at our appropriate level today. We just shouldn’t let go of goals that opened the score. In such situations, a banal penalty should be taken.
I am really disappointed and upset. We should play more thoughtfully. Now we are not doing what Barcelona should do”.
Let’s remind you that thanks to this success, Real gained 25 points and became the sole leader of the Spanish championship, while Barcelona lost for the first time in the season and is in 2nd place with 22 points.
