Carlo Ancelotti: "I Will Not Make Many Changes For The Match Against Osasuna"

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

The Italian coach will start a similar team from the one he deployed against Copenhaguen.

As usual, Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the media the day before Real Madrid's match. This time, Real will travel to Osasuna in what will be a cold, difficult match for los blancos.

Carletto praised Cristiano Ronaldo after winning World Soccer's Player of the Year and showed his support for the Portuguese's bid for the FIFA Ballon D'Or.

It is not new, Ronaldo has been playing fantastically for many years now. He already won an important award but the Ballon D'Or is more important. Let's see what happens.

Ancelotti gave some insight on Xabi Alonso's renewal as well.

I've spoken with him to let him know that we all want him to stay. He will take his decision, we have to wait.

There have been some transfer rumors about Ángel Di María. Ancelotti spoke about the Argentinian winger.

I talked to him to let him know that my office was open for him. He never came, so I think there is no problem about Di María. He might play tomorrow, I don't know how much time, but he might play.

And he finally shared his thoughts on Osasuna.

It will be a difficult match. We will not make many changes as everyone recovered well from Tuesday's game. Real Madrid have had difficulties against Osasuna recently, but I believe we can win the game.
