Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that the Spanish league champions this season are not in the whites’ bags. Although they are eight points clear of second-placed Sevilla, they have played in more than one game halfway through the season. From the disclosure with ‘As’ last Friday 

Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Athletic Bilbao in the final game of 2021 saw the Whites thwart Sevilla by eight points, but the Whites played more than one game. Still do not believe that this season’s La Liga title will be in Madrid’s pockets according to many people’s perspectives. After leaving two important rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona as far as 17 and 18 points respectively. 

‘I don’t think so, no, we have a slight advantage. And it is true that some opponents like Atletico or Barca they are far away,’ Ancelotti told AS. 

‘But not Sevilla, that’s an example, La Liga is a complicated competition because you can’t say there’s an easy game.

‘There are many good teams and there is good football. All teams have good quality of play,’ said the Italian coach.
