“We have scored 13 goals in the last two games. That is a sign that we have reacted well”, he said.
Carlo Ancelotti spoke in the Riazor press room after the game and analysed his team's historic result: "We played with a lot of intensity and tried to do things well throughout the game. We weren't always able to pull it off, but we killed the match off thanks to our ability to finish off our chances up front".

"We showed all the quality we have going forward. We have a phenomenon and a lot of other top quality players. They combined together really well and that was what stood out. However, we have to be even more consistent and improve the balance in the side. After suffering two defeats we have scored 13 goals in two games. That's a sign that we have reacted well”.

The possibility of narrowing the gap in La Liga
“We are not thinking about that now. We are focused on fixing the problems we have and concentrating on what we're doing well. The season is long and making up for lost points is not a problem at the moment”.

James had another great performance following on from the match against Basel, but this time he scored a screamer.

“The players who came on during the second half added more intensity to the team. They were fresh and helped the team close things out. Illarra gave us balance, Isco, quality; and Chicharito, depth. I took Benzema off to bring on another midfielder and avoid any problems because at that stage of the game we didn't have control of the ball”.

Deportivo's performance
“It was a tight contest until the first goal went in. They defended well up until that goal. After that, we had more space and it became very difficult to stop our forward players”.
