Real Madrid defence should be tough against Braga, says Ancelotti

MADRID: Real Madrid must produce a strong defensive performance and respect attack-minded Champions League opponents Braga, manager Carlo Ancelotti said on the eve of their Group C visit.

Real is top with two wins from two games. It conceded two goals in the victory at Napoli last time out but clinched a 3-2 victory thanks to a late own goal by Alex Meret.

Braga, who is third in the group on three points, also won 3-2 in its last Champions League game, coming back from two goals down to beat Union Berlin with an added time goal.

“It’s an opportunity for us because after two wins it would be good to win again,” Ancelotti told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s game at the Estadio Municipal de Braga.

“We’re playing against a team that plays well, who like to attack and be in control. For us defending is important because from there we can take advantage of the individual quality we have.” (Reuters)
