Carlo Ancelotti attributed Real Madrid’s 3-1 loss in Sunday’s Spanish Super Cup final to Barcelona’s superior performance, with goals from Gavi, Robert Lewandowski, and Pedri ultimately sealing the victory. Karim Benzema scored a late goal for Real Madrid at the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh.
At his post-match press conference, Ancelotti stated that Real Madrid’s errors determined the outcome of the game, noting that they failed to control possession and that the opposition capitalized on their mistakes. He also noted that while it was a poor match overall, it was not a result of a lack of spirit. Additionally, he shared that while it was a loss, it should not be considered a humiliation, as victories and defeats are a part of the game.
