Carlo Ancelotti believes Real Madrid are now 'title-favourites'

Carlo Ancelotti seems confident of winning the La Liga title.

The Los Blancos are clearly now favourties to win the trophy after their comfortable 2-0 win against Atletico Madrid.

Atletico are 13 points behind league-leaders Real Madrid meanwhile Barcelona are way behind by 18 points.

Ancelotti believes that his team should avoid slip-ups in the latter part of the season and avoid mistakes at the same time.

“I have a squad that allows me to be calm,” the Real manager said.

“They manage games very well and they’re committed defensively. We’re a team, not just one with good individual players, and that’s the difference.
“We’re clear favourites because we’re doing this part really well. But, we’re just focusing on the next matches. A mental drop-off can be costly, so we have to continue.
“When I was here before, we won 22 matches in a row in the second year, but the second half of the season didn’t go well. I don’t forget that. I’m happy now, but I know there could be slip-ups in the second half of the season.
“Maybe the previous experience can help me to avoid mistakes this time. We’ll look to be competitive in all the competitions we have.”
