La Liga will be difficult now – Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has said winning La Liga is going to be a difficult task now after watching his side draw 2-2 with Valencia.

Los Blancos came from two goals down to take a point at the Santiago Benabeu, but that is unlikely to be enough and Barcelona are four points clear with two games to play. Real could have taken all three points on a different night as they hit the bar three times and Cristiano Ronaldo also missed a penalty.

It means that the Champions League is the last chance of silverware this season, and the boss believes that despite the result, the players can take confidence going in to the retur leg with Juventus on Wednesday evening.

“The result isn’t good, the game was the opposite: very good. We fought until the end and deserved to win. Sometimes that is not enough. We had a lot of opportunities, we hit the post three times, missed a penalty…We have played the game and I think everyone appreciated it. We feel good and if we play like this on Wednesday then everything will go well,” he told reporters.

“We have to value the positive aspects of our game, and also look at the small errors, that are really costing us. We also have to remain calm because we will have more chances playing like that,’ he added.
