Ancelotti was criticised for playing not to lose last night.
“I don’t think we played with three defensive midfielders because Modric isn’t a defensive midfielder. Khedira and Ramos played defensively to give the team balance. Carvajal played with an attacking mindset, so did Marcelo, Di María is a forward, Ronaldo as well… I don’t think that Barcelona played with as many forwards. They only played with Messi and Neymar”.
He also assessed his experience in his first Clasico: “It was a great match with fantastic atmosphere. I think it was a great spectacle against a great team. We set out to win."
