Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed Real Madrid’s weakness ahead of the match against Eintracht Frankfurt in the European Super Cup finals.
The Italian gaffer was of the view that his players have pre-season games compared to their rivals who had played more games and the fitter.
“We have a few more disadvantages than Eintracht, who start their season earlier, but we’ll play to win. We look forward and not back. Last year’s victories reinforce what we believe, but we need to focus on the upcoming matches. During this coming season, there are six titles at stake, and we want to fight for all of them,” he said.
The Italian coach shared his thoughts about the German side, who won the UEFA Europa League title last season.
“Last year, Eintracht achieved something special because they weren’t among the favourites. They played great games, winning against Barcelona at Camp Nou by playing a counterattacking style of football, with huge attention to defence and high-speed transitions,” he added.
Real Madrid is known for games like this and they will be out to get the job done even if it will take them to convert the few chances they manage to create.
Real Madrid will start the season with the clash against the Europa League winners before they commence their title defence against Almeria in the La Liga on the 14th of August.
