Real Madrid arrives at the Etihad after beating Getafe 1-0 at home in LaLiga this weekend. The only goal was scored in the 70th minute by Asensio. By the way, there were several changes in the starting eleven of the ‘creamy’ with respect to the first game of the 1/2 final of the Champions League.
Ancelotti: If we lose to Manchester City, I will lose the squad.
The win over Getafe means Real Madrid have gone unbeaten in 8 of their last 10 matches in all competitions. They won 7 of 10 games but lost in two consecutive away games.
He did not participate in Benzema’s last game, but don’t worry. Ancelotti decided to let the leaders rest. The coach has already published a request for the second leg, which Karim got into. Camavinga was also there, although lately he has been training outside the main team.
The young and fiery Netherlands or the experienced and stable Benzema? Ancelotti is very cunning and he won the Champions League last season for a reason. Don’t underestimate it. He has already managed to close all of Erling’s paths and access to the gate in the first game. Moreover, Karim at a crucial moment cannot explode worse than the Norwegian himself.
According to Ancelotti, he once again has a clear plan. As the Real Madrid coach said: “If he doesn’t play, it’s because I missed the squad.” However, how can he make a mistake when he has on his app all the fresh and healthy leaders who scored against Man City in the 2021/2022 season?
