After a forgettable season in 2020, Real Madrid has started their season on a booming note, thanks to a superlative illustration of dominance from their striking duo of Karim Benzema and Vinicus Jr and some excellent management from Carlo Ancelotti.
Former Real Madrid preceptor, Carlo Ancelotti marked his homecoming to Santiago Bernabeu with back-to-back rollicking displays as Madrid comfortably cruises at the top of the table.
On the contrary, their arch-rivals, Barcelona are in absolute shambles as they are hardly able to find their shooting form and the team has embarked upon a journey to the deepest depths of despair with an accentuating gulf between Koeman, their supporters and the management.
Barcelona’s woes are on a rise
They were thrashed by Bayern in their opening encounter of the UCL as the latest edition of the fray kicked off which was followed by lackadaisical stalemates against undercooked monikers like Cadiz and Granada. In their latest fixture, they were finally able to return to winning ways, thanks to a brilliant display by Memphis Depay, Luuk de Jong and Ansu Fati.
Real Madrid, on the contrary, is riding roughshod over their counterparts as they conquered Inter Milan in the latter’s backyard, following it with a scintillating display against Valencia and Mallorca. Sadly, their chariot of victories came to an abrupt halt as they shared the spoils of war against Valencia last night.
This is what Carlo Ancelotti had to say about his rivals
Real Madrid gaffer, Carlo Ancelotti has made it evidently clear that he derives no pleasure from Barcelona’s sad state of affairs. According to Carlo for La Liga to be at its peak, both their best clubs need to be at their phenomenal best to uphold the league’s stature against top European clubs.
As per the reports stated by Diario AS, he quoted, “I like football, I watch the games and for sure I’m never happy when a team is going through a bad moment.”
He concluded by saying, “I’m focused on analyzing my team, but I like football and watch the games. For sure I’m not happy when things are turning out badly for a team. It could be Barcelona or any other team.”
