Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti expressed his happiness with his team’s journey in the first half of the current season of the Spanish Football League, but warned that there is still a long way to go before talking about crowning the Royal Club with the title.
Real Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 on Wednesday evening, as French striker Karim Benzema scored the team’s two goals, becoming the fourth player in the history of the Spanish League to score 30 goals or more in one year.
The Royal Club leads the Spanish league standings, eight points behind its closest rivals, Seville.
Ancelotti said in a press statement after the match: “The victory means a lot to us because of the absences caused by the Corona virus.
“We have to highlight that, it’s the Nacho match, Lucas Vazquez, Eduardo Camavinga, Eden Hazard and Federico Valverde, they all played a great match.”
He pointed out: Most of the time it was a great match of efficiency and commitment, this is the most important thing for me, this is as important as the three points, this is what we always count on.
When asked about his team’s chances of winning the La Liga title, Ancelotti said: “We did very well, but the road remains long. We’ll see if we can win a title. It’s essential in this club, but now we have a week off, we deserve it.”
