“It's impossible to do more than Cristiano is doing,” explained the Italian coach.
Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the media in the press room at the Ciudad de Valencia and had words of praise for his team's current form: "It was a difficult game to prepare and we did well, showing discipline and focus. Now we have time to recover and prepare well for the match on Wednesday. We're on a good run and the team is doing really well."

“Goals don't come without effort, fight and focus. They all understood that and we come into this moment of the season in good physical and mental shape. All the players have shown that we have a very competitive squad. Those who have played less in the first part of the season have shown that they are in good shape and are motivated. They fit in well when they play in the team."

Cristiano Ronaldo
“I think it's impossible to do more than he's doing. He has to keep this form up, and we're all going to help him to keep going as he is."

Modric change and players who missed out
“Modric had a knock. Now we have a few days to evaluate the situation of Bale, Benzema, Varane, Ramos and all the players who had fitness issues in this game. Bale had a problem with his gluteus and we preferred not to risk him. It was to avoid taking risks, it wasn't player rotation."
