Ancelotti admits Madrid must improve their defense. Nacho Fernandez, Real Madrid’s experienced defender, has often made mistakes that have contributed to Real Madrid conceding more goals in the recent period.

Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid’s coach, began to worry about the defense not being as strong as it was at the beginning of the season after injuries to Eder Militao and David Alaba, causing him to use Nacho Fernandes played alongside Antonio Rudiger, which caused more errors.

Real Madrid wins the Supercopa de Espana or Spanish Super Cup, their first success of the season. And the Whites still have a chance to compete in the remaining two competitions, La Liga and the Champions League, after being eliminated from the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey after losing to their city rival, Atletico Madrid. 

Even though the ‘Los Blancos’ army has serious injuries to their defenders, both Militao and Alaba, the Whites are still performing well. But there is another cause for concern for Ancelotti as well, with his current defense making more errors and causing the team to concede more goals than at the start of the season.

Real Madrid had conceded just 19 goals from 26 games played in all competitions, but since losing Alaba to injury, Ancelotti has had to deploy Nacho as centre-back alongside Rudiger Prague. Madrid’s defense has clearly deteriorated, conceding 10 goals in their last four games. They almost conceded several times against Mallorca and conceded two goals against Almeria in the game. The latest also comes from Nacho’s mistake. สมัคร ufabet

‘It’s a record that we have to take into account. (We have to) come out stronger than before. Stronger in defense You don’t always have the power to turn things around,’ Ancelotti said worriedly.
