Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says that local rivals Atletico Madrid should be considered genuine title contenders this season.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes that Atletico Madrid are genuine title contenders following their 1-0 win over his side on Saturday evening.

Diego Costa's 11th-minute goal was enough to maintain Atleti's perfect start to their La Liga campaign, and Ancelotti feels that his side's local rivals have what it takes to sustain a title charge.

"I think Atletico are a very solid team with a lot of quality. They can compete for the league title," Ancelotti told reporters.

"Atletico Madrid deserved to win the game. They were organised and solid in defence. We must improve a lot of things including our attitude and confidence.

"I have faith in my players. The problem is not our style of play; it's with our pace."

Next up for Ancelotti's men is a visit from Copenhagen in the Champions League on Wednesday.
