This is what Ancelotti said in the press conference before El Clásico, recorded by Marca.
About Jude Bellingham:
“Bellingham will play because he’s fine. He has recovered and is training today. He didn’t need me to explain what El Clásico was. It was a match that everyone watched and one of the most important matches.”
Real Madrid players’ physical condition before El Clásico?
“They have great motivation. This is a special match and the first El Clasico of the season. We are in good shape.”
Who will play at left-back against Barcelona?
“Camavinga played very well. Mendy has the advantage of having a break from the Champions League. I have faith in everyone. I don’t know who will start the match on the bench.”
“They are a great team, both in attack and defense. They have brought in very high quality young players this season.”
Regarding Modric’s ability to play:
“He was very professional and didn’t ask for any explanations. Likewise, I usually don’t give explanations to people who don’t get to play. There’s nothing to worry about.”
