Carlo Ancelotti has claimed that Real Madrid ‘deserved’ to win the Copa del Rey this evening.

Goals from Angel Di Maria and Gareth Bale gave Los Blancos a 2-1 win over Barcelona.

“We played at our maximum level,” he told reporters after the game.

“We performed very well for a huge part of the game. I think we deserved it.

“All the players delivered tonight. Ronaldo’s injury was an additional motivation for us.

“It's normal that this trophy gives us more confidence going into the final part of the season.”
