Real Sociedad 0-1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti handed a rest to most of Real Madrid’s key starters for the trip to Real Sociedad on Friday but still came out with a 1-0 victory.

In what was far from a vintage display, Arda Guler bagged the game’s only goal midway through the first half, firing Madrid one step closer to La Liga glory.

The victory brings a very welcome three points to Ancelotti, whose focus is clearly on Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Bayern Munich.

Carlo Ancelotti – His only goal here was to rest his starters, and he did exactly that. It was by no means an impressive performance but that was not even remotely important to Ancelotti.
