”The last results against Atletico give us extra motivation. We are convinced it will be a different game, but difficult as always when we play Atletico. But we are in a good place at the moment, full of motivation for the European competition and we are going to give our best.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says his side are motivated for revenge in their Champions League quarter final clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.
Los Blancos have failed to beat Diego Simeone’s side in any of their six meetings this season, with Atletico winning both league meetings between the two including a 4-0 win at Vicente Calderon in February while they knocked Real out of the Copa del rey and bested them in the Spanish Super Cup at the start of the season.
Real visit their rivals once more in the Champions League on Tuesday and the Italian says that revenge and qualification is on his sides mind since their 3-0 win over Eibar at the weekend…
Real will have a full squad to choose from for the game, given both Isco and James Rodriguez will be fit and ready to play…while Pepe will too despite suffering a collision with goalkeeper Keylor Navas against Eibar.
Ancelotti is also happy to have Cristiano Ronaldo back at his best after seeing him score seven times in his last three Liga games over the course of the last week when he had only scored twice in the seven games prior to his five goal haul against Granada.
