“Since December 30 last year, we have played 17 games in 50 days. It is quite normal for our team to not be in the best shape.”
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti made an excuse at a press conference after a 1-1 draw in the 23rd round of the 2022-2023 Spanish La Liga against Atletico Madrid held at the Santiago Bernabéu on the 25th (local time).
Real scored a goal from Jose Maria Jimenez in the 33rd minute of the second half of the day, and then teenager Alvaro Rodriguez scored a dramatic goal in the 40th minute of the second half and barely drew. In the 19th minute of the second half, Angel Correa was sent off after receiving a red card, but Atlético overcame the inferiority and took one point from the difficult away.
As a result, 2nd place Real recorded 16 wins, 4 draws, 3 losses and 52 points, failing to close the gap with 1st place FC Barcelona (19 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, 59 points), which played one less game. Barsa has an away game against Almeria at 2:30 am (Korean time) on the 27th, and if they win, the difference between them and Real will increase to 10 points. Atletico is in 4th place with 42 points from 12 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses.
“It’s more complicated than before the game,” Ancelotti said at a press conference. But we must fight and fight until the end.” He said, “Today we lacked mental freshness rather than physical. To win the league is a very difficult task.”
Coach Ancelotti placed Vinicius Junior, Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio in the forefront of the attack, and Dani Ceballos, Toni Kroos, and Federico Valverde in the midfield, but it was difficult to score a goal. 온라인바카라
Coach Ancelotti said of Benzema after the game, “He lacked a bit of sharpness mentally and had to be a little faster in the final third of the stadium,” but “after the World Cup he scored a lot of goals, especially the big ones.”
Real took a huge lead with 18-7 (effective 7-2) in the number of shots that day, and dominated the game with a ball possession rate of 61%, but failed to win.
