“In order to respect the opposition and the fans we had to play our game and that's what we did”, said the coach.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the press to discuss Real Madrid's draw against Cádiz in the LaLiga matchday 37 fixture: "It was a very even match and intense for both teams. We did what we needed to do. We played with intensity and we they didn't cause us any problems. Players who needed minutes got them. Carvajal and Ceballos have returned".
 
"In order to respect the opposition and the fans we had to play our game and that's what we did. We didn't have the focus and motivation they had, though we made it a competitive game. We need to back that up with another high-intensity game in our stadium. We've prepared everything well".

Nacho starting
“There are always doubts about Nacho in every game because we have a squad with more than eleven players available. There’re always doubts about the starting line-up”.

Valverde’s ability to shoot from distance
“He has to take advantage of his shooting ability. He’s had more shots in the last two games. This is one of his strengths. He hadn’t used it in previous games, but he’s going to try to shoot more. This is good for both him and for us”.
