Super Cup: Carlo Ancelotti said that Real Madrid only have two doubts to face FC Barcelona

The Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, said that he has some doubts to form the eleven that will face Barcelona this Wednesday in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup, “such as (Dani) Carvajal, who returns from an injury and is fine”, and another “in the right wing of the attack, where there are fresh people like Rodrygo, who could take the place of (Marco) Asensio ”.

Ancelotti pointed out at the press conference prior to the duel that he is convinced that “It’s going to be an even game like the Camp Nou de Liga match (the whites won 1-2)” and that “the numbers of the League classification (in which Real Madrid has a 17-point lead over Barcelona) do not count in a semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup.”

The Italian coach pointed out that “in a match anything can happen” and that he is sure that “it will be an entertaining match as are all matches against Barcelona.”

Real Madrid reaches the Super Cup as the outstanding leader of the League and qualified for the round of 16 of the Champions League and the Copa del Rey. “We arrived well, with all the enthusiasm and good attitude we need to take home this first title of the season,” he said.

“I would be concerned if the players think we are favorites. We don’t think we are favorites, we think we want to play a good game “, made it clear to journalists’ questions on this issue.

Regarding the improvement of the game and the results of the Barça team since the arrival of Xavi Hernández to the bench, Ancelotti said “that Barça is now following his hallmark” and believes that “with his attributes and his attitude he can move forward with the situation”.
