Carlo Ancelotti addressed the media at his pre-game news conference prior to the match. As the Barça prepares to meet Real Madrid at the Olympic Stadium in Saint-Montjuic, Girona is also keeping up with the Spanish powerhouses, which might cause them both a great deal of grief. However, that is a story for the future.

Jude Bellingham

First, he was questioned over Jude Bellingham, who had a setback in the Champions League match against SC Braga. However, the Englishman reaffirmed his attendance for the match, and the Italian manager echoed this, as reported by MARCA.

He’s going to play tomorrow. I don’t believe I need to explain El Clasico to him because everyone is fully aware of what it is. It is among the world’s most significant matches.

Important Fixture For Carlo Ancelotti

Tomorrow is Ancelotti’s 250th Real Madrid game to win. And he expressed excitement ahead of the game by adding, “We are excited.” There is a unique vibe. This will be the first clasico of the year. And we are eager to perform a fantastic match since we have prepared well.

“This is a crucial game that is worth three points, and it’s great for the dynamic because it matters to everyone.” The season is lengthy, though. We have to make a choice. The league will be extremely tough until the very end, with other clubs, including Atletico and Girona, battling as well.

“Barcelona is an incredibly well-organized team in every way.” They have talented kids playing with them, so we anticipate Barcelona to be the same as usual.

Barcelona Gems

Along with discussing Barcelona’s youth system, Carlo Ancelotti also mentioned a number of youngsters who have emerged this season, including Fermin Lopez and Lamine Yamal.

“I adore them all, Yamal, Fermin, and the up-and-coming athletes. We occasionally forget that we have incredibly talented young players, but we also have guys like Arda Guler, Vinicius Jr., Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni who have fantastic futures.

Ancelotti was questioned during the press conference about Barcelona’s academy’s ability to integrate more players into the starting lineup than Madrid’s.

“It’s challenging to respond. Barcelona has experienced several injuries, which presents an opportunity.

Modric and Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga and Luka Modric will anticipate starting the match on the bench against Barcelona, but Carlo Ancelotti promised that every player who requests an explanation for not starting would receive one.

“I will provide the players with an explanation if they want one. However, they are so polished that if they don’t play, they won’t ask for one.

His main position is the pivot. He adapts as a full-back or central midfielder, but his position is the pivot,” Ancelotti added.

Rotations Preffered Says Carlo Ancelotti

I started with the young players to see what they could contribute, then we started rotating a bit to keep the team fresh and motivated, he also said about Kroos.

Daniel Carvajal was on the scoresheet against Sevilla, and Ancelotti was asked about the Spaniard’s ability in the box.

We forgot in previous years that he is very intelligent in the penalty area and that he finishes very well with his head. I changed his role in set pieces.”
