"I'm going to field the best possible eleven for a demanding game," said Ancelotti at the pre-match press conference. The Italian will be without Camavinga and Vini Jr. due to the accumulation of cards, but Benzema and Rodrygo will be on hand in attack. Both Madrid players were on target in the last LaLiga game against Almería with a hat-trick from the captain and a goal and a superb assist from the Brazilian.
