Los Blancos won Rayo Vallecano 2-1 at the Bernabéu and climbs to the first place with 27 points
Real Madrid continues in the fight for the first place as Carlo Ancelotti’s team won this Saturday the derby against Rayo Vallecano (2-1) thanks to goals from Kroos and Benzema to make the 8th victory of the season, the third at the Bernabéu. “We had chances to score five or six goals but I’m happy because the team competed until the last minute,” said Ancelotti soon after he reached his 100 victories in 135 games at the helm. A milestone in the same way as the best managers of this historic Club.
These 100 victories for Ancelotti are 65 in La Liga, 22 in Champions League, 10 in the Copa del Rey, 2 in the Club World Cup, and the European Supercup. Besides, the Italian has won four titles for Madrid: 1 Club World Cup, 1 European Supercup, and 1 Copa del Rey
Ancelotti is the seventh manager to reach these figures in the history of Real Madrid. The next on the list for the Italian is Molowny (107). The rest are Beenhakker (121), Mourinho (128), Del Bosque (133), Zidane (172) and Miguel Muñoz (357).
