Ancelotti Refuses to Call Super Cup Defeat a ‘Humiliation’

Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 3-1 in the Spanish Super Cup final on Sunday, with Gavi, Pedri, and Lewandowski scoring for the Catalan giants. Benzema scored a consolation goal for Real Madrid in the 90th minute. Despite the defeat, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti refused to call it a “humiliation.”

Carlo Ancelotti said: “To say this was a sporting humiliation is a lack of respect. We lost a match to Barcelona, just as we won a match against them in LaLiga. Barcelona were better today. That’s it. To say humiliation, that’s too much. In sport, sometimes you win, sometimes the opponent wins.” 

Barcelona’s midfielders played a key role in the win, with Gavi being named the man of the match for his 2 assists and a goal.
