Varane, Ramos And Pepe Fighting For Two Spots - Bernabéu Bites 10.26.2013

Ancelotti will have to choose two players out of the three to stop Messi, Neymar and company.

  • Raphäel Varane is back. And that means that the last centerback that stopped Lionel Messi will be available. Still, Pepe and Ramos are performing decently and could start El Clásico. Varane is still young and considering that he's coming back from small problems, Ancelotti might opt for Ramos and Pepe's experience.
  • Only Xabi Alonso was left out of Real Madrid's squad. That means that Ancelotti will have to discard three players plus reserve goalkeeper Jesús Fernández.
  • The team arrived in Barcelona yesterday. Almost 1,000 fans received the team at the airport. Bale and Modric signed autographs for the socios present at the team's hotel.
