Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has warned Chelsea that his Real Madrid side are motivated for Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Chelsea at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ancelotti said: “It’s important to think first that it’s a 180-minute game and try to play well tomorrow. This game is not decisive but it could give us an advantage to take into the second leg.

“The team is feeling good, optimistic and motivated to play in Champions League again and see another magical night at the Bernabéu.”

“It’s a different way of thinking. We have to take advantage of the fact that we play the first game at home to get ahead so we can into the second leg in good stead, as the second leg is definitive.

“The team has done well both at home and away, as we did last year and deserved to win the Champions League.”
