Ancelotti told Marca.

Asensio who had just been handed his second start of the season was praised by Ancelotti the most after he scored a goal and assisted another.

“He was the best of the match. He mixed well with Valverde. He was forceful and effective. The best. His attitude when he wasn’t playing was good. I had no doubts, but when you’re not happy you can have a negative or positive attitude. He chose the positive.”
