The Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, pointed to the lack of luck in front of the goal as the cause of the draw (0-0) this Sunday against Real Sociedad, a setback at the Santiago Bernabéu that puts them five points behind the leader Barça , but with a “very long season” still ahead.

“It has been one of the best games we have played this season. It was difficult to make changes because everyone was playing very well and I did it to get fresh legs. We played well from the first minute to the last,” he said at a press conference.

The Italian coach highlighted the role of his team without the luck to see the door. “Real Sociedad have never played the way they wanted to due to the pressure we put on from the start. We pressed up and put intensity. We played well with the ball and we were committed without it. We had many chances to score, but we didn’t have any luck. These are things that can happen “, he claimed.

“If we win on Thursday we have scored more points than last year. Barcelona are doing very well, but the season is very long. The month of January has been difficult, but in these games the team has grown a lot in all facets “Offensive, defensive, the physical aspect. The team is beginning to improve and this week the injured players will return. We have confidence for the coming months,” he added about the fight for the League.

In addition, Ancelotti explained Camavinga’s lineup on the left side. “It seemed to me that he has been good. He is an option that can be used. He shows quality, energy. He has matched up well with Vini on the wing creating chances. I am convinced by his energy, which can also be used as a winger. The left winger With Vini, he has to play more on the inside than on the outside and that suits him well,” he said.

“He played a good game and if he had scored his game it would be spectacular. He is in very good condition. Sometimes he fails, but he always tries,” he added about the Brazilian, while also praising another good game by Dani Ceballos. “He is playing very well and today he has played at a very high level, like the last games. He is contributing a lot, especially in this period in which some were missing and he has been prepared”, he affirmed.
