Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti was a frustrated figure at full time despite their 2-1 win over Real Sociedad.
Los Blancos made it five La Liga wins from five games so far in 2023/24 but it was a tough night for the home side in Madrid.
Fede Valverde’s spectacular goal hauled the home team level against their Basque visitors before another Joselu goal won the tie late on.
However, the major early talking point was another goal conceded by Ancelotti’s charges in the opening stages of a game this season.
Real Madrid have been forced to come from behind in three of those games with the three goals let in all scored inside the first ten minutes.
A win is a positive for Ancelotti but he was irritated by a poor defensive pattern developing within his table toppers.
“The good thing is that we’ve been able to come back but we have to avoid these situations, and make more of an effort as we did today”, as per reports from Marca.
“We’ve won thanks to the energy and commitment of the team.”
Up next for Real Madrid is the start of their Champions League campaign in midweek with Union Berlin heading to the Spanish capital.
