Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti talked about the importance of the upcoming match against Shakhtar in the Champions League before Sunday’s Clasico against Barcelona, ​​and also revealed the position of Belgian winger Eden Hazard and left back Ferland Mendy.

Ancelotti said in the press conference: “It was a good period recently because the players who left us are back in good shape, except for Hazard, who has a slight problem. The rest arrived in good condition, Mendy and Marcelo came back to us, and Toni Kroos improved.”

He added, “I saw some good things in the training of the last days, and we are motivated because it is a very important match. We failed in the last two matches because of the lack of organization, but the team is ready.”

He explained, “At this time of the season there is no team working to its full potential. The international breaks affect a lot, but we have to think that it is not the most important period of the season. The most important period is when the finals come in April and May.”

Regarding the treatment of the next two matches against Shakhtar and then Barcelona in the Clasico as final matches, the Italian coach said: “We agree with that. Before the international break, we did not perform well, and therefore they are very important matches.”

As for the midfield trio Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, Ancelotti explained, “I think from what I see in training they are top-class players and they keep competing. We are a list with a lot of young people pushing these big guys. We have to take into account age, and the possibility of giving minutes to young people in order to gain experience. It can be said that we have a medium that can compete with everyone.”

Ancelotti confirmed Hazard’s absence from the next match, and Mendy’s availability to participate, saying: “Hazard is tired and has a small problem caused by overload and this does not allow him to exist. I think he may be ready to play against Barcelona or Osasuna. Mendy is ready, but I do not know if he will start the match.” .

On playing tactics, Ancelotti said: “We failed in some moments of the matches. I tried to defend 4-4-2 and things didn’t go well. The idea I had is now clear. The team has to play 4-3-3. There are some games that The team can play it without a clear winger, but I think it’s the best way for the team.”

Finally, about Shakhtar coach Roberto De Zerbe, Ancelotti concluded, “I know him well. He is a good friend of mine. His team plays with a very clear identity, and Shakhtar is as good as Sassuolo played before.”

It is noteworthy that Real Madrid has 3 points from two rounds of the Champions League, where it defeated Inter Milan with a clean goal and lost to Sherif of Moldova with two goals to one.
