A late header from captain Dani Carvajal secured Real Madrid a 1-1 draw at Sevilla on Saturday as the LaLiga leaders battled back after David Alaba’s own goal had given the hosts the lead.
“It was an even match, competitive, with intensity,” coach Ancelotti told reporters.
“I think we played better in the first half than in the second. We didn’t make the most of the chances we had and in the second half Sevilla played well, with intensity, it cost us a bit more.
“The result seems right to me. Sometimes it can happen. We tried, Sevilla tried, and nothing.”
Real moved on to 25 points from 10 games, three ahead of Girona, the surprise package of the season who host bottom side Almeria on Sunday.
Barcelona, third on 21 points, face Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
