Carlo Ancelotti could not be satisfied after his team's defeat to Barcelona at Camp Nou. The Italian expert knew that they had to win this match if they wanted to be in the fight for the title. However, Real Madrid did not have the strength for a good result, and in the end, they were defeated 2:1.
Ancelotti spoke about his impressions after the match; "I analyze it from the view that we played a good game, we deserved to win, the game was won. Then there is the question of the goal we had that was chalked off. We tried everything at the end, we lost a bit of composure and they scored.
The game was very good, we’re leaving with the confidence that we can finish the season well."- he said, as quoted by as.com
Carlo Ancelotti talks about offside
Both teams had dominance in certain moments of the match.
Ancelotti could not deny that Asensio's goal was offside. "They had control [of the match], we did too, we were in it until the end. It comes down to small details, like this type of match, but we were convinced we had it won.
Do you think it was offside? Yes, yes... you have to accept it. But I still have my doubts. No doubt it’s nothing. We have the right to have that doubt." The changes made by Ancelotti made Real Madrid more concrete, but it also caused many "holes" in the defense that Barca took advantage of.
The Italian still believes in the title. "It was the approach we made, to leave the right wing freer and force the attack more on the left. We were effective on the counter at the end. The changes also gave the team momentum. We took risks, and it just didn’t quite work out for us.
We are going to fight until the end, we’re behind, we’re leaving the game sad, but we’re also good because the team has played well. We are going to fight in every competition, to the maximum. The only concern we have is trying to play this way. If we play like this, we’ll win something, for sure."
