Ancelotti: "Without the ball, you have to do more, press more …"

Carlo Ancelotti was happy before the Movistar LaLiga microphones for the victory against Betis. However, he did not miss the opportunity to demand more application from his teammates in defensive tasks.

Happy. “In the second half we were better, it was not a spectacular game but a clean sheet, what we wanted, we are happy.”

Defensive problems “Without the ball, you have to do more, press more. Alaba has been very good when we played with the high line. It’s just a work problem ”.

Vinicius. “His streak was good and then Hazard came into the game, I think he did well.”

Carvajal. “Dani is a fundamental piece, he is not alone, but his character is very strong, if we talk about intensity we must follow his example”.

Subsequently, the Madrid coach analyzed the meeting in the press room before the media.

What has the team lacked to make the game more orderly? Does it seem a lack of respect for PSG that does not respond to the offer for Mbappé ?: “We talk about the best game. The rest is a matter of the club that is working and I do not know the details. We have worked the game quite well. A little more defensive intensity was lacking in the first half. We controlled the game in the first half, but I think it can be played with more intensity ”.

Has it been difficult for Benzema to associate because he lacked control of the game ?: “The first part of the game was more even. We weren’t able to win the ball upstairs. Karim has suffered this. The team was not fast with the ball. But it has made a difference as always. He has given a magnificent assistance to Carvajal ”.

Calls for South American internationals. Will they be able to arrive? He’s busy?: “This is a bit of a weird business. There have always been national team matches. In this break, I think the players arrive on Saturday morning. It seems impossible to me that they can play. It is not only the problem of Real Madrid, but of many teams ”.

In normal conditions, where do you like Alaba the most, as a center-back or as a full-back ?: “From central”.

What balance do you make of these three games ?: “There are many things that we have to improve. I think the balance is positive. We had a somewhat particular preseason, with many players who were late. I think the team has played quite vertical. We have to do the defensive part with more intensity ”.
