Carlo Ancelotti confirms Real Madrid post El Clasico break

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has granted his players an extra rest period following their 2-1 El Clasico win in Barcelona.

Los Blancos have landed back in Madrid after an impressive late rally in Catalonia to extend their lead at the top of the La Liga table to four points over their old rivals.

Jude Bellingham brought his goal tally up to 13 in all competitions, with a second half double in Barcelona, and Ancelotti hailed his side’s resilience in the latter stages of the game.

On the back of the win, Ancelotti has continued his policy of rest breaks after big wins, ahead of a busy schedule of matches.

Ancelotti has built up a reputation for strong man management during his career and he wants to ensure his players remain in peak physical condition in 2023.

As per reports from Mundo Deportivo, the squad will be granted time off until Thursday November 2, before their local derby at home to Rayo Vallecano three days later.

  1. There is something that Real Madrid lacks when coming to match games against Barcelona,it’s lacking their own type of play,meaning they wait for Barcelona to set the pace and they follow.
    Saturday’s game explained everything, they drew back on Barca’s attacks without holding ball to themselves until we saw the introduction of Carmavinga who changed the play tremendously in favour of Madrid.Players like Valverde and Tchounamy started to see what was expected of them and began pushing forward.
    The problem of the coach is to start came with Mendy who usually time to time play back the ball at the goalkeeper and this bringing Barcelona to build their hold on the center of the pitch making it difficult for Madrid to contain the pressure.
    Joselu also has to practice holding a ball for himself before making decision to pass a ball to his mates by this he can force defenders of the opponent team to stay behind.
