Real Madrid hoped to shatter the confidence of their opponents by squeezing three defeats in a row. Same goes for Xavi Hernandez’s side.

‘We have assessed the previous game against Barcelona and if we made the same mistake in the last game, it will affect us. But I don’t think it will happen again. We are close to winning an important competition for us.’ said Ancelotti.

The Italian also said of Vinicius Junior’s growth: ‘Vinicius’ growth is positive, relying on him is normal. Because now he is one of the best players in the world.’

When it comes to a potential duel between Vinicius and Ronald Arauho. ‘Arauho is a very strong defender. And it will be a fun pairing with Vinicius’.

Ancelotti added on Rodrigo Goes fitness: ‘Rodrigo felt good but he only trained once. We’ll decide,’ followed by referring to Karim Benzema saying, ‘What Karim did was very important. And we thank him because he helped us a lot. And hopefully he can do well this year as well.’
