|Real Madrid: Carlo Ancelotti|
The temporary standings of La Liga are 10 points from their closest rival, Sevilla, after beating Mallorca with a score of 3-0 on Tuesday (15/3) early this morning WIB. Real Madrid appear to be running alone in the title race at the moment, however, Carlo Ancelotti chose not to underestimate the situation.
The Italian coach recalled the memory of 2005, when his AC Milan had won 3-0 against Liverpool in a Champions League final.
However, what happened afterwards was that the Reds succeeded in forcing the match to a penalty shootout by balancing the score to 3-3, and Milan eventually lost in the shootout.
"Nothing has changed, we have the advantage and that's good, but we have to reach the international break with a good performance," Ancelotti told Marca. "I told you that I lost a Champions League final after winning 3-0.
I hope that doesn't happen again." The next match for Real Madrid will be difficult, because they will host Barcelona at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Monday (21/3) early morning WIB. Unlike in the first half of the season, when Los Blancos could easily win 2-1 from Camp Nou. Barca at this time has shown his tajir, along with the success of Xavi Hernandez.
