Carlo Ancelotti said the Real Madrid squad consist of formidable players that can take advantage of a stiff contest to provide victory for the club.

He noted that the squad have good dynamics that work perfectly for them.

In an interview after Real Madrid defeated Espanyol on Sunday, the Italian added that the players took advantage of the spaces to leave it late at Cornellà-El Prat.

Los Blancos had gotten an early lead from Vinicius Junior through an assist by Tchoaméni but was cancelled 31 minutes later by Joselu.

However, the resilient home side were hellbent to frustrate the European and Spanish champions from having the day whilst the award-winning coach resorted to making four substitutions which he acknowledged made the difference.

Dani Carvajal, Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Ceballos, and Rodrygo, came in for the second half to make a difference with Rodrygo providing the assist for Karim Benzema to reclaim the lead before sealing the 3-1 victory at an additional time.

“We have a very good squad and the five changes help us a lot,” Ancelotti said.

“When the game breaks we have an advantage because we have powerful players with energy to take advantage of the spaces.

“We won because we had more energy than the rival.

“We have started well, scoring early, but we have lowered the intensity. The second half was difficult for us, but we increased the pace with energy and it has paid off.

“Tchoaméni has arrived and we have to take advantage of it, but the other midfielders have to balance their movements,” he added.

Real Madrid presently sit at the top of the Spanish La Liga table with a 100 per cent record from 3 games. In their next fixture, Los Blancos will welcome Real Betis to Santiago Bernabeu on September 3.
