A vibrant finale is coming. Real Madrid will face Athletic Club for the final of the Spanish Super Cup and Carlo Ancelotti referred to how he sees his squad before the match. Also, the Italian coach was “glad that” his team “play against”.
“I am delighted that it is said that Real Madrid plays against because playing against is not easy”, Ancelotti assured this Saturday at the press conference prior to the match to be played at the King Fahd stadium in Riyadh.
“It’s playing vertically and having players who pass at the right time and strikers who touch it at the right time”Ancelotti said.
On the other hand, regarding the third goal that Valverde scored in the victory over Barcelona 3-2 in the semifinal on Wednesday, Carletto considered that they had “six players, not one. It was not won by a long pass to Vinicius. It was three or four low passes. It’s a counter well done.”
This match was decided in extra time, but Ancelotti is confident that he will have most of his players ready, except for Dani Carvajal, who is out after testing positive for Covid-19, who is joined by two doubts: “The team has recovered well, I think we have no problem physically, we have two doubts: Alaba (who already missed the semi-final due to muscular discomfort) and Asensio, who we are going to evaluate in the afternoon training session”.
The Italian coach, who declared “very happy” for experiencing a new final and a new stage at the helm of Real Madrid, he is clear that the match against Athletic “It’s going to be an even match, where small details are going to be important”.
