Real Madrid coach Ancelotti excited by form of his attacking trio

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is delighted with the form of his attackers going into their Champions League clash with Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema are all amongst the goals.

Ancelotti beamed: "They are playing very well. I have often heard that the relationship between them is difficult and at the moment the attacking combinations are very good. I hope they carry on like that. The defensive system is not shaped by them because I don't want to lose the attacking clarity that we need.

"They have to get into good positions and keep the team compact, but it is normal that the other seven have to do the defensive work with more intensity."

And with regards to whether he is the best forward line that he has coached, he said: "It is very hard to say. It is difficult to compare different teams and styles of football. What the three forwards are doing is something very interesting."
