Ancelotti Plays Mind Games as Real Madrid Gears Up for Champions League

Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid’s head coach, has already started the psychological warfare as he discussed his views on the favorites to clinch the Champions League title this season. Ancelotti’s comments are sure to catch the attention of Manchester City and other competitors in the competition.

According to Ancelotti, “Manchester City are favorites because of the squad and above all because they won the Champions League. But in the final part, there are surprises. At the moment they are the favorites. Madrid will compete until the end. I don’t think we are favorites. City don’t think they are favorites either, but the fact that they won it last year makes them favorites.”

Ancelotti’s subtle suggestion that Real Madrid is not the frontrunner could be seen as an attempt to shift pressure away from his team and onto Manchester City. It’s a classic move in the realm of sports psychology.

With their European campaign set to kick off, Real Madrid is undoubtedly determined to make a strong statement by triumphing over Union Berlin on Wednesday, regardless of their perceived status as favorites.
