Following a disappointing 2-0 loss at Real Sociedad in LaLiga, Carlo Ancelotti analysed the match as so: “This was not the best preparation for the games we have coming up, because losing always hurts. It’s true that players are more focused on the Osasuna and Manchester City games. You’ll see a different team in those next two games, definitely. We’ll be ready. Our level has dropped in LaLiga, but we have two more competitions to fight in. Today, the first half was decent but then we conceded the 1-0 goal and it all went wrong from there. Our second half was not good and I hope this was the last poor performance.”
