Ancelotti is leaving clues. If in the training session open to the public on Monday he showed all his cards and let us see the eleven that he would start against Cacereño (the eleven from the team that wore dungarees in the match came out), in his call-up and in the match he made it clear his intentions to visit Villarreal on Saturday. A game reserved for the starters , who did not wear out on Prince Felipe. He left eight players from his gala eleven in Valdebebas and another four only played for a while in Caceres.

Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Tchouameni, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema and Vinicius. Ancelotti left eight in Madrid. He rested Benzema, Modric, Vinicius, Kroos, Alaba and Mendy and Courtois and Carvajal did not travel either, who after Valladolid had not trained with the group and had followed an individual work plan to finalize their set-up after the break. Militao and Tchouameni started in the Cup and were the two changes that Ancelotti made at half-time so that Rüdiger and Valverde could play their scheduled 45 minutes.


Going for the lead before the Super Cup

Villarreal awaits one of those days marked in red on the calendar. Real Madrid and Barcelona are even on points in the lead after the culé puncture in the derby against Espanyol and they have two complicated clashes . Madrid have only won two of their last ten visits to the Estadio de la Cerámica and the last five have ended in a draw. Ancelotti’s men, who play on Saturday (4:15 p.m.) also have the opportunity to put pressure on the Catalans , who on Sunday (9:00 p.m.) have a litmus test against Atletico at the Metropolitano. An opportunity for the defending champion to remain the sole leader before storming the second title of the season: the Spanish Super Cup.
