Carlo Ancelotti talked to the press after Real Madrid's 2-1 win against Málaga, and the most popular topic was the record set by his team. 16 consecutive wins.

I have a deep admiration for these players, they'll give me credit for it but this is a fantastic group of players. We all know that in football the past is past. We have to look forward and be competitive in all competitions.

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a sitter, but Real's two goals came off assists by the Portuguese player.

I liked Cristiano a lot tonight because he gave us two assists and he was the key to this game.

Isco was sent off, but La Rosaleda -- his former home -- gave him a standing ovation.

I think that Isco's second card should be removed, because he went for the the ball and touched it. Isco is loved in Spain and I think he deserves it.

Ancelotti is surprised by how hard this midfield is running.

I'm surprised by the attitude of the players who were not used to run defensively in the past like Isco or Kroos.

And finally, he announced that Jesé will more than likely get some minutes on Tuesday's match against Cornellà.

We are evaluating his condition and if it's possible for him to play on Tuesday and I think he's fine. I don't think Jesé will start on Tuesday, but he will get some minutes.
