Real Madrid will take a trip to Scotland to play Celtic in their Champions League clash on Tuesday the 11th of September, 2022 with a major weakness in the team that has been exposed lately.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team maintain a perfect start to the season with four wins in four games with those winning coming against Almeria, Celta Vigo, Espanyol and Real Betis.
Real Madrid was unable to keep a clean sheet in each of those games, though they earned their three points they were unable to keep a clean sheet in all their four games so far.
Ancelotti has expressed his concern about the weakness of the team, Real Madrid has strengthened the team during the transfer window with the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni but the defence is yet to play a game without conceding a goal.
And Carlo Ancelotti seems to recognise the importance of improving in this area as well. As reported by Marca, the Real Madrid manager said after the 2-1 win over Real Betis:
“We have to take into account the goals conceded, today’s was a pretty serious mistake, they caught us inattentive on a throw-in. We have to improve these little situations, that’s true.”
The Italian gaffer admits that Real Madrid need to improve defensively, despite their 100% record to the season but they have to work on their defence with Barcelona looking incredibly strong and title contenders once again, with the Catalan base club signing a host of players this summer.
