The Real Madrid left a lackluster presentation in his first game of 2023 in which beat Cacereño 1-0 of the fourth division of Spain.
The Príncipe Felipe Stadium in the city of Cáceres received the league and European champion whose victory by the minimum cost more than expected, possibly due to the state of the grass, according to the coach Carlo Ancelotti.
“You can’t play football. For me it’s not football, it’s another sport, nice because small teams can fight and compete with bigger teams. It’s good for the fans but the fans also want to see beautiful games”, said the Italian coach when asked about the pitch.
Regarding his team’s play, Carletto commented that “I liked everything, from the first minute to the last, I knew we had to suffer, we didn’t risk anything behind, the defense line was fine, a clean sheet, everything was fine”.
The Merengue victory came from a great goal from Rodrygo Goes at minute 69. “He made a fantastic play, the rest has been an even and competitive game. A lot of struggle, a lot of long ball, it couldn’t be done any other way, the team has complied and I’m satisfied, it was a game we’re not used to”, Ancelotti closed.
