Real Madrid fullback Carvajal: We followed Ancelotti's instructions for Sheriff win

Real Madrid fullback Dani Carvajal was delighted with their 3-0 win at FC Sheriff.

The result has Real well placed to qualify from their Champions League group.

Carvajal said, "It's freezing cold here but the result makes everything more palatable. We've qualified and done our job here, which was to win at this ground. We've struggled to keep clean sheets in recent games but we managed that today and hopefully that will continue into the coming matches because that will help us gain lots of points.

“The coach told us not to get complacent, that it would be a tough match. We knew we'd have to put on a complete display in every respect in order to win it and the team reacted well. We couldn't afford to slip up with the result today.

"Now we have a game every three days against very strong opposition, so we have to rest and give the coach a difficult selection decision and get as many points as possible."
