Barcelona will be a frequent visitor to Real Madrid in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Italian Carlo Ancelotti, coach of Real Madrid’s first football team, spoke ahead of Thursday’s match in the Cup.
Ancelotti boosts Barcelona player’s performance
“Vinicius, being one of the best players in the world, often directs matches in our favor and it is natural to rely on him because he is one of the greatest players in football at the moment,” Carlo said when asked about Junior.
And about the new meeting with Vienna Ronald Araujo in El Clasico: “This will not change us. Araujo is a very strong defender. He showed it in his last matches. It will be a spectacular match. I hope Vinicius wins.”
What about players returning from injury?
After two training sessions of the Brazilian Rodrigo with the Ancelotti team, he did not confirm his presence at the Classic, but confirmed: “Today I trained and it looks like he is doing well, and soon we will make decisions.”
