Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has defended the sale of Mesut Ozil. Real continue to be criticised over Ozil's departure to Arsenal.

"He is a great player and has a great quality, but in these two last matches we have played without him we have not had any problems when it comes to scoring goals," said Ancelotti.

"The team is very powerful in attack without Özil. In fact, we have scored ten goals in two matches."
