Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti has revealed his doubts about his starting eleven and the strategy he hopes to deploy against Manchester City.
The La Liga leaders will be confronting the Premier League leaders at the Etihad later tonight in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal.
With Joao Cancelo out through suspension, John Stones and Kyle Walker are injury doubts, Ancelotti is looking to exploit City’s potential defensive vulnerabilities.
“The doubt I have is whether to opt for three forwards or just two. The Italian tactician said.
“We need to think about this, as players like Rodrygo and Camavinga are doing really well. That’s the question mark we have.
“Defending well with be an important part of the game. It’s very simple. When Manchester City have the ball, you can’t just watch.
“You have to defend and try to win it back. Maybe it’s with a high, medium or low pressure. Then, when we win it back, we have to try to make the most of our quality.
“Maybe that’s done with playing out from the part or long balls or with one-on-one duels with our quality on the wings. There’s not many secrets. I think that’s how it’ll go tomorrow.” He concluded.
