Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with their thumping win against Real Sociedad.
Real Madrid won 4-1 on Saturday.
Ancelotti later said, “We played really well from the first minute. The plan was to press high and try and make it tough for Real Sociedad to play out from the back. It was physically demanding but we did a good job. If we play like that we’ve got a better chance of getting something on Wednesday (against PSG).
“It was a big game because we had the chance to extend our lead in LaLiga. We enjoyed ourselves and the team really understood the importance of this game. This game will give us a real boost for Wednesday. This is the intensity we need to show and the kind of game the fans love, it’s when they really help us to find our best form. Let’s hope we can repeat it
“All madridismo will believe we can turn it around on Wednesday following this game. The players thanked the fans and it was nice to see. Their help will be absolutely vital on Wednesday.”
Eduardo Camavinga struck on the day.
Ancelotti also said: “He’s an option for Wednesday. We’ll see what kind of condition Kroos and Valverde are in over the next few days and then we’ll see who will play on Wednesday. The plan won’t change, whoever plays. He’s got the quality and he doesn’t mind if he’s substituted in the break. He knows how important he is in the squad.
“He’s young and motivated. He feels better next to Casemiro, than in his position, but he can do a good job in both places. He’s got a great shot on him and bags of energy. He scored a great goal.”
