With his victory in Transnistria before him Sheriff, the Real Madrid added its 30th season by beating the group stage of the Champions League. The white team has never failed in its beautiful relationship with the ‘orejona’ for the romantic 30 of 30. A unique record on the continent, immaculate, seamless, that this Wednesday made use of “a serious team“to achieve its objective, according to value Carlo Ancelotti at a press conference.

The Italian was pleased to have seen a “different” team who faced the Sheriff in the surprising first leg in the Bernabu, which ended with the triumph of the visitors in a defeat that reminded the two that Madrid itself, with Zidane on the bench, suffered twelve months ago against him Shakhtar. Those failures against the Ukrainians, especially the second in Kiev, jeopardized Madrid’s record in the group stages and brought Zidane to the starting ramp until the team reacted and recovered to reach the semifinals.

“Tonight I have seen a serious team, we have played well and we have not risked in defense, so I am satisfied. We went from group and we want to win the last game to go first to eighth “, he affirmed, before admitting that” we are in good dynamics and we can compete with the best in Europe“.

“Knee sprain”

Now, the Madrid team continue with a terrifying calendar: Sunday on Seville, on Wednesday, December 1, Athletic club at the Bernabu, on Saturday the 4th Real society in San Sebastian, on Tuesday 7 the Inter in Chamartn and on Sunday 12 the Athletic in the Metropolitan.

For the duel against the Andalusians it is doubt David Alaba, lime and sand at Sheriff Stadium. He scored the first goal of the match from the front of the area and was injured in the second half, raising all the alarms from the coaching staff. Luckily it seems that the Austrian problem has been a scare. “He has a knee sprainand it doesn’t seem worrisome because it’s not in pain. We hope he can play on Sunday. “If he doesn’t, Nacho will have to take his position.

Facilitator, not agitator

Benzema, protagonist of the morning in Tiraspol after being sentenced to one year in prison for the ‘sextape‘ from Valbuena, he scored the third goal for Madrid and received the affection of his coach: He is totally focused on this. The other is long overdue, Ancelotti explained. The French striker played the whole game, like Vinicius, Modric and Kroos. The Brazilian was especially tired during large parts of the match and did not dribble as usual, acting more as a facilitator than a shaker. In spite of everything, he disputed the 90 minutes.

The changes… I have changed to Mendy because he had a yellow card, to Carvajal because he was back from injury, to Alaba because he had a knee problem … I was missing two changes and Casemiro was warned and if he received a card I could not play against him Inter, so I’ve changed him. I was missing one and I chose Rodrygo, who was also injured, “he summed up. The others are fine, now we play on Sunday night and I think we have time to recover.
