Ancelotti: “Hazard must have faith, who would have thought that Mariano would have his moment?”

The Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, has acknowledged that the duel against Shakhtar Donetsk on the fourth day of the Champions League is very important and has been sure of the good moment of his team, and that his players “do not fail on a mental level “in this type of dueling.

“It’s a very important game. Winning or losing changes things a lot. Losing a game like this requires you to win the other two and complicates your life and winning leaves you close to qualifying, the goal. We know it, the team is going to give everything and do not fail mentally in these games, “he said at a press conference.

In addition, the Italian coach celebrated that his squad is “pretty good.” “We are happy with the moment, we are doing well,” he deepened in this regard.

“The team knows very well what tomorrow’s game is, we have faced them a fortnight ago and we know them very well. We are going to propose a good strategy to try to win, it is an important moment in the group and winning would mean a lot” , he stressed.

With Real Madrid second in group D, with the same 6 points as the leader Sheriff and two more than Inter, third, Ancelotti believes that they must continue to “create opportunities” to improve their game. “We have to try to play fast and vertical football, showing quality and the issue will be resolved very soon,” he commented, referring to the lack of aim.

As for the rival, who came from thrashing 0-5 in the first round match, he believes that Roberto De Zerbi is a coach who has “very clear” the identity of his team and his game. “He is very young and is going to be successful in his career, he has a very nice idea of ​​the game,” he said.

Asked by Marco Asensio, he assured that he asks you to enjoy its characteristics. “He is not fast on the wing but he does have a phenomenal left hit and we have to enjoy it, and his passing. Against Shakhtar he gave assistance to Karim, it has been important and continues to be important,” he said.

“Hazard’s moment is going to come, as Mariano’s moment arrived and he has enjoyed playing very well, professionally. This is what Hazard and the others who are not playing at the moment have to do,” he said in relation to the lack of confidence you may have in the Belgian, far from his best level.

Striker Rodrygo, who had a little annoyance against Elche, will not be against Shakhtar. “It is a small thing and will return after the ‘break’. It is not an injury problem, it is a calendar problem and we have to manage it,” Ancelotti said.

“Bale is committed, Bale’s situation is quite clear; he has had a major injury and has needed time. He is very close to fully recovering, he could come to train with us before Rayo Vallecano, could it happen. What happens? That Wales He calls him because he needs him, and he will evaluate if he can play or not. If he can train before Rayo, he could go to his national team. And we are delighted because he would have minutes, “he commented on the situation of the Welshman.
