Carlo Ancelotti blasts his team’s attitude after Rayo Vallecano loss.
The Los Blancos suffered their first La Liga defeat this season and are now two points behind Barcelona in the league table.
This defeat brought an end to Real’s 12-game unbeaten streak in La Liga and drop their position in the standings.

“We weren’t convincing in the individual duels,” Ancelotti said in his post-match news conference. “Sometimes, when you can’t match the attitude, quality alone can’t win you the game. We lost a lot of balls and we suffered with their pressing. It was a bad night.”
They will host Cadiz on Thursday night before La Liga takes a seven-week break for the World Cup.
“In terms of quality we dropped off a bit,” Ancelotti said. “Rodrygo [Goes] and Vinicius [Junior] missed some chances that they’d usually score. It wasn’t a good game. [Marco] Asensio did well, but the others weren’t as good as usual.”
