Carlo Ancelotti has insisted Real Madrid will battle on in their La Liga title defence despite losing more ground to leaders Barcelona.
Los Blancos were held to a 1-1 draw at home to local rivals Atletico Madrid, as Alvaro Rodriguez produced a late equaliser off the bench, to rescue a point against the 10-man visitors.
The result means Real Madrid now trail Barcelona by seven points in the title race in 2023 with Catalans in action at Almeria tomorrow night.
Despite the difficulty of the incoming challenge, the veteran Italian coach remains confident of his side being in a position to keep pace with Barcelona in the run-in.
“It’s more complicated but it’s not goodbye to the title, we have to fight until the end, and see what happens”, as per reports from Marca.
Real Madrid will have a chance to disrupt Barcelona’s momentum in midweek, as they host their El Clasico rivals in a midweek Copa del Rey semi final first leg, before heading to Real Betis next weekend.
Lets put it this way: as long as their institution is bleeding money, theyre losing out on qualifying where REAL money is being made… Im perfectly happy, as it is pushing them towards bankruptcy.
Real are shrewd, they have already figured where the money is and where to put their efforts. Winning CL is 82,3 mil euro. Coming second in la liga is only 6 million less than being first. We have 5 CL trophies in last decade. You do the math
Real already made 39 mil euro from CL so far and another 10 is waiting if we beat Liverpool, brokELona made 10 mil in EL and theyre out.
Mr Ancelloti caused Set back to the club by consideringhis prayers’ welfare. His lately changing of the midfield talents and bringing in M.Ascencio instead of leaving Ver to pair up Vini and Benz ,brought the setback( since Rodrigo is injured).
