Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes that his Catalan rivals Barcelona suffer from a lack of balance.
Real Madrid managed to qualify for the Spanish Super Cup final, after defeating Barcelona 3/2 after resorting to two additional games.
Barcelona’s double came through Ansu Fati and Luke de Jong, and Real scored his hat-trick through Vinicius Junior, Karim Benzema and Federico Valverde.
Ancelotti said in statements to the official Real Madrid channel: “We played with great commitment and planned the match well and kept our humility and this is the secret of the victory.
He added: “There were some difficult moments as usual in matches like this, the important thing is always to find the weak point of the opponent.”
He continued: “Barcelona has many players in front, but they lack balance, so we took advantage of it and helped Vinicius and Asensio to resist the pressure with short passes, as we did in the first half.”
On the final match: “It will be completely different, there are many important things in football to take into account, such as possession, counter-attack, defense, pressing and set pieces, and fortunately for me I have training experience in many countries with different football schools.”
It is noteworthy that the final will be held next Sunday between Real and Athletic Bilbao to decide the winning team of the Spanish Super Cup.
