Ancelotti: The criticism after the Paris match had a magic effect… and this is our weak point

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that the criticism that the team was subjected to during the last match against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League had the magic effect in the victory over Alaves.

Real Madrid defeated its guest, Deportivo Alaves, by 3-0, in the match that brought them together on Saturday evening, at the “Santiago Bernabeu”, in the 25th round of the Spanish League competition for the current season 2021-2022.

Ancelotti said, in statements after the match: “The second half was better. We had more quality and more movement. The criticism against Paris Saint-Germain was fair, and it had a factor in the victory. We did not play well. I accept all the criticism as we move forward.” .

He added: “I was pleased with what I saw in the second half and then I did not change, I was going to change Asensio, but he scored, so it is not time for a change.”

He continued: “It is difficult for us to enter the matches with the intensity necessary, it is a weakness that we will fix, the only match we started well was in Bilbao in December.”

He concluded: “When the attackers score this is a good sign, it is important for the three attackers to score. The last matches we faced were difficult. This match helps us prepare for the next matches.”

Real Madrid strengthened its lead in the Spanish League standings with 57 points, 7 points ahead of runner-up Seville with 50 points, while Alaves’ balance stopped at 20 points in the nineteenth and penultimate place.
