Ancelotti focuses on Real defence

Carlo Ancelotti

Coach Carlo Ancelotti will switch his focus to improving Real Madrid’s defence after seeing his attack click into gear in stunning fashion over the last week.

Real came in for criticism following a disappointing start to the season which saw them lose two of their opening three Primera Division games, having also been beaten by Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa. However, 13 goals in their last two matches, thrashing Basle 5-1 and Deportivo La Coruna 8-2, suggests Real’s star-studded forward line is beginning to fire on all cylinders.

Ancelotti said ahead of tonight’s visit of Elche to the Bernabeu: “Right now, we have the same problems as last year, although our attack is better. Now the attack is good but we need to improve our defensive play.”

The top four in La Liga are all in action tomorrow night, where leaders Barcelona will look to continue their perfect start under Luis Enrique when they go to Malaga.

Barca have won all five of their competitive matches this season without conceding a goal, and Spain defender Jordi Alba admits it is nice to be on a high after the lows of the last year for club and country. He said following Sunday’s 5-0 mauling of Levante: “Last season wasn’t very good, either for me or for the team... it’s been some time since we’ve all been so happy.”

Barca are two points clear of Sevilla, who are at home to stuttering Real Sociedad, while third-placed Atletico travel to Almeria.
