Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid coach, assured before completing the last training session with his squad in Valdebebas, that Dani Carvajal and Eden Hazard will be at the Camp Nou classic, recovered from their injuries, but that they will start the match against Barcelona as substitutes .
The only doubt for clearing Ancelotti in a starting team that he did not want to reveal, does not go through the return to the eleven of Carvajal or Hazard. The Italian coach confirmed the recovery of both and their presence in the squad list, but does not see them in physical condition to be starters.
“The team is ready, we are going to get Carvajal and Hazard back too, we have a very good squad, everyone is focused and motivated although they do not play from the beginning because they know that they can be important entering the game from the bench and doing it well, “he valued at a press conference.
“Eden is fine, he trained with the team and everything has gone well like Carvajal but it is difficult to put a player who comes out of an injury and put him in a game like this. The important thing is that he is available and can be useful at any time” He added, making the substitution clear.
Ancelotti acknowledged an improvement in his team as he has been recovering players who were injured. “In the physical aspect we are improving a lot and we have recovered important players like Kroos, Mendy and Marcelo”.
“We are improving the level, we have to improve something else. I would like to press ahead and we have to work on it. I like the offensive aspect because we are doing well, with good combinations, creativity of the players and quality. “
