Despite overturning a 1-0 deficit in typical Real Madrid fashion, Ancelotti couldn't hide his disappointment with his team's performance. The game changed in the second half, however, as Real Madrid were able to get a foothold in the game thanks to goals by Rodrygo, Karim Benzema and Vini Jr. Ancelotti credited the bench with the team's comeback, praising the impact of Eduardo Camavinga and Dani Ceballos. The team has had to push itself to the limit in recent matches, even for some of the smaller fixtures. In their last six games, just two of them have seen Real Madrid score the opening goal and score in the first-half.
