Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has warned his Real Madrid team are motivated to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Ancelotti said: “We’re in good shape, motivated as ever. These are important games in a big competition. We’re focused on the fact we’ll have to deliver a complete display. There are 90 minutes still to play and anything can happen. We’ll be ready to play as well as we possibly can.

“It’s hard to say I have to pick a starting eleven. One day I’ve got it and then the guys who don’t play as often have a great game and they change your plans a bit. This squad has so many resources and to think only about the starting eleven is a lack of respect to the guys who play less but do a brilliant job. Camavinga may well play at left-back again.

“Playing football is all we’re concerned with. There are teams who are more used to playing in the evening and others who play more at night. The calendar demands you play at all hours of the day and we always have to be ready.”

“We’re well aware of what we have to do at this club, which is win every game. We compete until the last with all of our strength. We could be lucky enough to be involved in another semi-final. We take it one step at a time. If we make it again this year, we’ll have done a good job. Making the semi-finals of the best competition in the world three times is very good.”
