UCL Easier to Win than La Liga –Ancelotti

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes his side have a better chance of retaining the UEFA Champions League (UCL) trophy than denying Barcelona the La Liga title.

Los Blancos squeezed past Atletico Madrid to reach the last four in midweek and were rewarded with on paper the easiest draw as they face Italian champions Juventus in the semi-finals and have the second-leg at home.

However, they also remain in the hunt for La Liga, just two points behind Barcelona with six games to go.

“It is more difficult to win La Liga because we have a disadvantage. Barcelona have the lead, although it is just two points. In the Champions League we are all equal,” said the Italian, who coached Juventus between 1999 and 2001.

Injuries could have a big role to play in how successful Madrid are in the final month of the season and Ancelotti is confident both Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will be fit to face Juventus in Turin on May 5.
