Ancelotti: Real Madrid played the worst match
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said that his team played their worst game this season, when they lost 2-1 to Espanyol in the Spanish first division.
Real continued to suffer and lost for the second time in a row, after suddenly falling at home to the unknown Sherif Club from Moldova in the Champions League.
Real has not won in the last three games in all competitions, but it leads the local league with 17 points, and a goal difference from its neighbor and rival Atletico Madrid, the defending champion. “We played badly,” said Ancelotti, who returned this season for his second term at Real Madrid.
We started the game with a plan for the defensive and offensive sides. But we couldn’t stay calm and stick to the plan. He added: I do not think that our position on the field was good, whether with or without the ball, and I must be honest, I think it was the worst match since I returned to coach the team.
“It is very good to play properly after losing a match, but now it is difficult because we will have to remedy that during the international break.” I don’t think this will affect our behavior. We will try to move forward. Real will play in the next round at home with Athletic Bilbao on October 17.
