Thus, the team was able to raise its score to 18 points and is in second place in the La Liga table, one point behind Girona, which is in first place.
In the next round, Real Madrid will face Girona in the eighth round of the Spanish league, and the match will take place next Saturday at 19:30 Egypt-Saudi Arabia time.
Ancelotti shocks Real Madrid fans and reveals the nature of the team’s injuries after the match in Las Palmas!
Ancelotti said at the post-match press conference: “Carvajal will be present in the next match and Alaba is suffering from a muscle problem and I think he will not be present and Rudiger’s presence is in doubt due to his injury.”
He continued: “Ibrahim and Joselu created a lot of danger. We are glad that those who don’t play much are doing well.”
He stressed: “I was worried when we fell back at the end of the second half. We didn’t have good control of the match. That’s what worries me the most. We tried to start the match strong.”
The Italian coach added: “We lacked a little success in the second half. We lacked intensity. Almost all teams had a slight drop in intensity.”
As for direct passes, he said: “It’s a great option because the pass can put you on your own against the goalkeeper. I’m not a fan of possession, I’m a fan of scoring goals.”
