NEWS | 26/03/2014 | Javier García (Sevilla)“I don't think we deserved to lose, we took the lead and could have scored more goals”, said Real Madrid's manager.
Real Madrid played their Liga matchday 30 match in the Sánchez Pizjuán. Carlo Ancelotti stated after the game: “I don't think the defeat affected us. Before everything was going well and now we have arrived here. Now we need to react with everyone's character and personality. The league is more complicated and all the matches will be important”.
“I don't think we deserved to lose. On the one hand we could have because we didn't prepare well for Sevilla's counter-attacks and that is how they scored both goals. We took the lead and could have scored more goals. Then they scored two goals in the same way when we needed more balance”.
“Alonso is not at fault, he miscontrolled the ball, but we have to cover his back and we didn't. That is where both goals came from. Cristiano Ronaldo was annoyed because we were losing the match, nothing more. Now La Liga is more complicated because we are behind. It's more complicated but not impossible”.
Matches against big teams
“It's not a problem. The team has lost against smaller teams. La Liga is complicated and it has strong teams and every match is difficult. We have to think about ourselves. We lost two matches but we have to believe we can win it. We are behind but we have to believe it is possible”.
