Carlo Ancelotti made history yesterday winning the league in five different countries as his Real Madrid shuffled every opponent away. The game yesterday vs. Espanyol was another top performance as the result told no lies, 4-0. Two goals from Goes, one each for Asensio and Benzama.
Carlo Ancelotti has during his years in management not had a strict route to the top but also seen stumbles and sacking signs along the way.
His route could have been so much easier but as Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola you have to take a few chances on the way to excitement, and a return to Real Madrid was not obvious when Everton let their manager leave to yet again get a sniff of spanish royal greatness.
His number of trophies can still grow after this massive La Liga win with the Champions League semi-finals soon to be played. The fact that you see such a massive gap in points to the next team in the table you will of course also believe that winning the Champions League is absolutely possible.
Man City is the hurdle to pass and a win at home with two goals or more would see them through to the final, but a 46% advantage to their opponent tells a story of a difficult task.
Real Madrid did decide to part company with Carlo in 2015, after a two year spell that did see them win the Champions League and Copa Del Rey, both trophies in his first season as decline was the result in the next.
AC Milan, Chelsea, PSG and Bayern Munich all had the thrill of winning their league trophies under Ancelotti as he now at 62 years of age has done it at Real Madrid in a suvereign manner.
It will be interesting to follow the next steps as pressure will grow on him in the showdown with Pep Guardiola on Wedesday the 4th of May.
