Rayo Vallecano 3-2 Real Madrid: Los blancos’ loss against their local rivals gives Barca a five point advantage

Rayo Vallecano 3-2 Real Madrid: On Monday evening, Real Madrid suffered a rare setback at the hands of Rayo Vallecano. Trainer Carlo Ancelotti blamed the failure on a lack of strength in his club, which had not lost a La Liga game since May 8.

Rayo Vallecano 3-2 Real Madrid: Ancelotti’s take

“We lacked the opponent’s strength,” Ancelotti stated at a press conference in the Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas of cross-town Rayo. “We’re tired, but that’s to be expected after so many games. We need to review the first half of the season to see if we did well. We are saddened by the loss. But we are performing well in La Liga and the Champions League. We must now finish strongly against Cádiz.”

His attackers, especially, were not focused on the lost derby. “Quality has dropped slightly. Vinicius, Rodrygo, who missed a couple shots he usually makes,” remarked Ancelotti, who also witnessed someone escaping the funk. “Asensio was excellent. However, the level of the others was lower than usual.”

“It’s not a physical problem,” the Italian concluded, raising his own heart. “When I say strength, I also mean the difficulty of building the ball from the back.” The coach’s tactic also failed, forcing the club to play the long ball from the back. “We are devastated by the loss. But this season’s first half was better than ever,” he added.

The loss marked the club’s first loss in the league this season. At the time of writing, Real Madrid occupies the 2nd position in the league. They are five points behind Barcelona with 32 points. Athletic Bilbao and Atleti form the rest of the top four in the Spanish premier division

However, the Madrid side do have a game in hand over their Catalan arch-rivals. Furthermore, the Blaugrana also have a significantly better goal difference.

Los Blancos will close the first half of the season on Thursday with a home game against Cádiz..
