3 Decisions Made By Carlo Ancelotti Against Valencia

Real Madrid played one of the toughest games in the season against Valencia on Sunday and fought hard till the end to earn the three points and they are back in the number one position on the league table.

The Italian manager made some tactical changes at the beginning of the match as well as during the match.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted that making some changes is very complicated. With five substitutions and with Real Madrid squad depth, making tactical changes is a great advantage for Real Madrid.

Below are three tactical decisions made by the Italian manager against Valencia:

- Substitute Lucas Vasquez for Dani Carvajal.

Carlo Ancelotti did not want to take any risks when Dani Carvajal felt a slight discomfort in his calf in the first half of the game. The tactical manager substituted the Spanish defender for Lucas Vasquez.

- Substituted Casemiro

Casemiro had an off day against Valencia and it was very obvious. The decision to substitute Casemiro for Isco Alarcon was a hard call, but it needed to be made. With Casemiro out, the defense got a little more exposed, but Camavinga provided some cover when he got in later on.

- Start Nacho Fernandes over Miguel Gutierrez.

The major explanation for this tweak is the lack of experience by the academy players. Ferland Mendy's direct substitute is Miguel Gutierrez, but in a match like Valencia's, experience is more important than talent.

Carlo Ancelotti during the post-match press conference revealed that there are many great talents, but it is important to understand that the technical quality they have is not enough for a game against Valencia.
