Real Madrid opened UEFA Champions League group play with a 6-1 win over Galatasaray. Real Madrid is looking to appease fans after a loss to Atletico Madrid in the derby with a win today.
“This is my responsibility. I’m going to fix it, it’s normal that they are upset,” Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti said, via ESPN FC. “It’s a motivation for me because I want the public to enjoy Real Madrid.
“The results were good up until last week. We haven’t started to play naturally yet. You need to have more time for the players to use the system in the most natural way possible. We’ve changed many things.
“It’s not good to lose a derby and we need a quick reaction, both in our play and in results.
“I have confidence in the players and I think they’re going to respond well. The game against Copenhagen is a good chance to recover. The team will play well very soon.”
