“He was as good as Benzema”: Carlo Ancelotti lauds Marco Asensio’s performance against Valencia

Carlo Ancelotti’s side has been exceptional against Valencia as they grabbed a thrashing victory of 4-1 with Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior scoring two goals.

The French and Brazilian duo has a combined goal scoring tally of 29 goals this season just in La Liga with Benzema topping the table with 17 goals in his name.

The Italian boss has been very happy as he praises the performance of his players especially his front three in the last match, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio.

Carlo Ancelotti’s front three looks all set to bring glory to Real Madrid

Vinicius, Benzema and Asensio

Ancelotti has praised the performance of his Spanish winger saying, “Asensio played well too, at the same level as Benzema and Vinícius. When he is playing well he’ll get to play the full 90 minutes.”

“The front three were good, but not guaranteed to start every game as I also have to think about players like Rodrygo, who has always done well when chosen.”

Real Madrid is currently sitting at the top of the table, 8 points clear of Sevilla with 49 points in 21 matches and are all determined to bag their 35th League title this season.

Real Madrid are set to take on FC Barcelona in their next game as the two Spanish giants clash to play their semi finals of Super Cup at King Fahd Stadium, Saudi Arabia.

Carlo Ancelotti, “This is the first trophy of the season and every team wants to win it. A Clásico will always be a Clásico. Even though we might theoretically be favourites, we then need to put that into practice on the pitch. Every match starts 0-0.”
