Last night Real Madrid reached the final of this year’s FIFA Club World Cup with an easy convincing 4-0 thrashing of Cruz Azul. Ancelotti stated before the match that his side would take this match seriously even though the difference in quality and resources between the 2 sides is of course overwhelming. Ancelotti backed this up by fielding his strongest possible line-up, even though most sources indicated he might rest the likes of Ramos, Casillas, Carvajal, and most importantly Toni Kroos.
The difference in quality and resources between Real Madrid and almost every team in the world is overwhelming.
