Real Madrid took another step towards the Spanish LaLiga title after beating Osasuna 3-1 at El Sadar on Wednesday. The victory, in fact, meant a reason for joy in the merengue store, although there was also a sense of concern from David Alaba, who could only play the first half, due to injury.
On the subject, and only six days before the duel against Manchester City, for the first leg of the Champions League semifinals, coach Carlo Ancelotti referred in dialogue with Movistar +.
“We are optimistic. It doesn’t seem like a serious thing. He has had an overload, his adductor has bothered him a bit and we preferred to remove him from the field ”said the Italian about the Austrian defender, who gave his place to the Spanish Dani Carvajal for the complement.
The strategist was also consulted by Karim Benzema, who missed two penalties and wasted the opportunity for Real Madrid to increase the advantage in advance and begin to secure victory away from home.
“Sometimes penalties are missed by those who take them. Nothing happens, they were not important for the result. It sure won’t affect it. If there was another, he would throw it. Apart from the two penalties, he has played a super game. He is going to score in the next match”Ancelotti indicated.
On the other hand, Ancelotti celebrated the step taken by Real Madrid in the domestic competition, in which it is close to being crowned champion. “There is less left, but there is a little left”sentenced the DT.
