Carlo Ancelotti: "Bale Will Play'

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

After the brilliant 3-0 win against Atlético, Carlo Ancelotti addressed the media and answered questions about the match against Villarreal.

As usual, Carlo Ancelottispoke to the press the day before the Liga BBVA match against Villarreal. The Italian coach had the whole roster at his disposal with the exception of Sami Khedira and Casemiro.

Gareth Bale is ready and I think he will do a good game.

Still, according to Carlo Ancelotti, Alonso, Pepe and Di María are still recovering from the tough Derby.

Yes, we have some players that are a bit tired after that game and if they can't play tomorrow some others who are fresh like Isco and Illarramendi will get their spot.

When asked about Jesé, Ancelotti was a bit cautious.

He's playing really well but we still need to be cautious with him because he's still very young. There's no hurry.

The 3-0 against Atlético Madrid was a comfortable result. Pepe and Ramos are one Copa del Rey yellow card away from missing the potential Final. Still, Ancelotti believes the tie is not over.

We need to play with a good lineup tomorrow because the match will be tough. And we will still play with the best available team against Atlético because the tie is not over yet. We're not thinking about yellow cards yet.
